About the Program

The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC) 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 Administration Hospital on the same campus. Both hospitals serve as major referral centers for the Midwest.  A brand new 507,000 square foot Children’s Hospital opened next door to UIHC in March of 2017. The Department of Radiology at UIHC consists of 60 staff physicians and researchers, 14 fellows, and 34 residents. There are currently 4 faculty members in the Section of Pediatrics who now work in state of the art facilities in the new Stead Family Children’s Hospital. Most procedures will be obtained or performed at the new Children’s Hospital from March 2017.

Our 1-year accredited fellowship 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.

Fellow has an office space shared with 2-3 fellows in other subspecialty with a computer available for paper work. Call is about 1-2 weeks per month, a week at a time including weekends. During weekends, fellows are generally in for approximately 1-3 hours to read overnight and daytime studies from the units. They are staffed during that time. Fellow is also expected to participate in a research project during the year of fellowship. He/she is encouraged to prepare material for presentation at a national meeting. Fellow will assist in teaching medical students and residents during daily work, give a mock board presentation, and will attend weekly conferences.
