Pediatric Radiology

Overview

The University of Washington Department of Radiology, through its affiliate Seattle Children’s Hospital, offers a one-year ACGME accredited fellowship in diagnostic pediatric radiology.  The care providers at Seattle Children’s Hospital are united by a compelling mission: we provide hope, care and cures to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible.  We deliver superior patient care, advance new discoveries and treatments through pediatric research and serve as the pediatric and adolescent academic medical center for Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho – the largest region of any children’s hospital in the country. In 2016, U.S. News & World Report ranked Seattle Children’s No. 1 west of the Rocky Mountains – and No. 5 in the country overall – again placing us among the nation’s top children’s hospitals.

Our primary program aims are as follows:

  1.  Provide a robust clinical imaging training environment that offers fellows the tools and knowledge to practice excellent pediatric diagnostic imaging with up-to-date, appropriate procedures.
  2. Offer opportunities to develop future academic pediatric radiologists in the areas of teaching, research, and process quality improvement.

The Department of Radiology performs over 100,000 radiological examinations annually in all imaging modalities.  The department has 23 faculty and 7 to 10 resident trainees on rotation.  Training is in all aspects of imaging, in both the inpatient setting and the outpatient setting, with satellite centers east of Seattle in Bellevue, south in Federal Way, and a developing clinic north of Seattle in Everett.  Subspecialty pediatric services in the Seattle Children’s Hospital system include oncology and bone marrow transplantation, neonatology, pulmonary medicine, endocrinology, rheumatology, orthopedic surgery, general surgery, transplant surgery, neurology and neurosurgery.  The fellow gains expertise using CT, MRI, radiography, fluoroscopy, neuroradiology, interventional radiology, cardiac imaging, fetal imaging, and nuclear medicine. 

On-call shifts overnight and on weekends are shared over the year with residents rotating from the University of Washington, from Virginia Mason Medical Center, and from Madigan Army Hospital.  Each individual call shift is managed by either a Fellow or by a rotating Resident, supported by in-house and on-call technologists as well as by an attending pediatric radiologist.  In addition to routine daytime clinical duties and call shifts, Fellows are also involved in a number of interesting and informative multidisciplinary conferences.  Fellows have the opportunity to teach residents and medical students.  Research and educational interests are supported by dedicated research time, separate from clinical hours.
