Paediatric Interventional Radiology Fellowship
The Clinical Fellowship in the Paediatric Interventional Radiology Program is one of the fellowship programs offered by the Department of Diagnostic Imaging at The Hospital for Sick Children. It provides training for those radiologists interested in pursuing a career in image-guided paediatric interventions. The program is within one of the largest and busiest paediatric interventional radiology divisions in the world, performing a variety of different types of interventional procedures.
There is flexibility in the duration of the fellowships. Interested candidates may apply to one-year, 18-month or two-year programs depending on the particular needs of the applicant or of the institution that is sponsoring the candidate.
The Paediatric Interventional Radiology Fellowship includes involvement in the complete variety of procedures performed in our unit. Fellows gain competence through a process of graduated responsibility as they acquire greater experience under ongoing supervision of staff radiologists. It is expected that at the end of the fellowship they are the main operators in the majority of interventions. Fellows are also actively involved in morning huddles, clinical rounds, clinic consults and post procedure patient management.
During the fellowship we provide a variety of lectures on different topics of interest and we run a journal club at least once a month. Fellows also participate in morbidity and mortality rounds, interesting cases rounds and city wide rounds, in which interventional radiologists across the city get together to review interesting cases.
