Pediatric Radiology Fellowship

Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital has openings for an ACGME approved Pediatric Radiology Fellowship of one year duration beginning July 1, 2025.

Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital serves as one of New England’s major referral centers for diagnosis and treatment of pediatric diseases. A full range of inpatient and outpatient subspecialty physicians provide a diverse referral base for the Pediatric Radiology Department. Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital is a 201-bed facility which includes a 46 bed Newborn Intensive Care Unit and an 11 bed pediatric intensive care unit. There is a 24-hour pediatric emergency room serving as one of only two Level 1 pediatric trauma centers in the state. Serving as the primary teaching hospital for the Yale School of Medicine, the hospital offers accredited residency positions in all major medical specialties including Diagnostic Radiology and Interventional Radiology.

The Pediatric Radiology section performs and interprets:

  • Radiography
  • Fluoroscopy
  • Ultrasound
  • Computed tomography (CT)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

There are approximately 40,000 exams interpreted and performed by the section each year. Imaging takes place at Yale-New Haven Hospital Children's Hospital and at two dedicated off-site pediatric outpatient facilities in New Haven and Norwalk. This individual receives training in all aspects of Pediatric Radiology in collaboration with the Yale Nuclear Medicine, Neuroradiology, and Interventional Radiology sections.

We are also involved in a wide range of clinical research projects and actively participate in clinico-radiologic conferences. These include a once weekly Tumor Board, and monthly conferences with the Pediatric Surgery, Urology, and Emergency Medicine departments. There is also regular representation at interdisciplinary meetings with the Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Child Abuse, Vascular Anomaly teams. This is in addition to the daily rounds with the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, the Newborn Special Care Unit, and the pediatric inpatient teams.

The fellowship is located in New Haven, a college city with fine restaurants, theaters, and multiple cultural activities associated with Yale University. A short distance from New York City, Boston, and Northern New England, New Haven provides an excellent base for exploring New England and all it has to offer. Visit our Regional Info page.
