For the next generation of leaders
The Department of Diagnostic Radiology is pleased to offer one-year and two-year fellowship programs in general pediatric radiology at the IWK Health Centre.
You'll be eligible to apply for our clinical fellowship program if you're a Canadian or international applicant. If you're an international applicant, you must have completed four years of training in a diagnostic radiology residency program or be board-certified as a radiologist in your country of origin.
What will you learn?
As a fellow in our program, you will rotate through:
- general radiology
- CT (body and neuroradiology)
- MR (body and neuroradiology)
You will have exposure to:
- interventional radiology
- nuclear medicine
- PET (if required)
You'll work under graded supervision and are expected to contribute to the clinical and academic work of the department.
Your teaching and research time
You'll be required to participate in resident teaching, multidisciplinary rounds and on call duties. You'll also be required to participate in a research project leading to presentation/publication in a regional, national or international conference. To assist you in accomplishing this, you'll be provided with protected research time.
All imaging and procedures are supervised by a member of the staff which provides an excellent opportunity for teaching, quality assurance and feedback.
