About the Program

University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics is a beautiful, state-of-the-art, 734-bed tertiary care center located in the Big 10 community of Iowa City, Iowa. It is closely allied with a 200-bed Veterans Affairs Hospital on the same campus. Both hospitals serve as major referral centers for the Midwest. The Department of Radiology at UI Hospitals & Clinics consists of 60 staff physicians and researchers, 14 fellows, and 34 residents. There are currently four faculty members in Pediatrics who now work in state-of-the-art facilities in the new UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital.

Our one-year accredited fellowship positions in pediatric radiology involves imaging of children from the newborn period through adolescence. All areas of pediatric imaging are emphasized, including magnetic resonance imaging, pediatric neuroradiology, computed tomography, ultrasound, angiography and interventional procedures, and conventional imaging techniques. Pediatric radiologists supervise fellows who are in the role of consultants during their active pediatric radiology services. Fellows also are active in a number of research projects and are expected to become involved in the teaching mission of the section.

Fellows have an office space shared with fellows in other subspecialties with computers available for paperwork. Call is about one to two weeks per month, a week at a time including weekends. During weekends, fellows are generally in for approximately one to three hours to read overnight and daytime studies from the units. They are staffed during that time. Fellows are also expected to participate in a research project during the year of fellowship. They are encouraged to prepare material for presentation at a national meeting. Fellows will assist in teaching medical students and residents during daily work, give a mock board presentation, and will attend weekly conferences.
