Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, in collaboration with Emory University School of Medicine, offers a one-year, ACGME-certified pediatric radiology fellowship. We are dedicated to providing a comprehensive program for training fellows in pediatric radiology. We train qualified radiologists to be highly competent in all aspects of pediatric imaging in order to serve children in their communities, whether it is in an academic or private practice setting. Additionally, we offer two pediatric subspecialty programs:

Children’s is one of the largest pediatric clinical care providers in the country with three hospitals, 673 licensed beds, a Level 1 Trauma Center and more than 60 pediatric specialties and programs. Our various locations encounter more than one million patient visits annually, and radiology performs more than 300,000 imaging examinations.

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Emory University: A historic partnership of pediatric excellence

Children's and Emory historical image

In 1956, the Board of Trustees for both Emory University and Egleston Hospital signed an agreement to make Egleston a first-rate teaching hospital

Children’s is one of the largest freestanding healthcare systems in the country. Emory is one of the nation’s leading research universities. Together, the two share a passion for pediatric innovation and advancements. In 1956, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s Egleston Hospital and Emory University first established a pediatric teaching relationship. This relationship has developed to facilitate leading-edge pediatric research, training and innovation.

Children’s and Emory University School of Medicine partner together on pediatric residency and fellowship training programs as well as the management and execution of clinical trials. Discoveries in Emory’s research laboratories are translated into lifesaving treatments at Children’s. Emory and Children’s share a unique employment agreement; more than 400 physicians hold titles at both independent institutions.

National Honors from U.S. News & World Report

Children’s ranks among the nation’s top pediatric hospitals on the U.S. News & World Report list of “Best Children’s Hospitals.” The report ranks hospitals for excellence in outcomes, program structure and national reputation in 10 pediatric specialty areas.

In conjunction with Emory, Children’s is committed to excellence and innovation in pediatric research. Our radiology department conducts a wide spectrum of clinical and translational research in collaboration with colleagues at Emory and as part of several large multi-institutional collaborative efforts.

Fellows receive one half-day of academic time per week. Each fellow completes at least one academic project during fellowship training. Fellows may also present at the Society for Pediatric Radiology (SPR) and Radiology Society of North America (RSNA) annual meetings, among others. An academic stipend is provided to all fellows for meeting travel, books, and subscriptions.

Our areas of interest include:

  • Development and use of advanced techniques in ultrasound, CT, MRI, nuclear medicine and interventional radiology.
  • Innovative techniques in pediatric radiology education.
  • Quality and safety initiatives, including improving patient communication and access to care.

Additionally, we are uniquely positioned to advance research nationally by leveraging the vast capabilities in Atlanta, including:

  • Emory University
  • Georgia Institute of Technology
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Training is enhanced by an organized curriculum comprising a variety of regular didactic and interdisciplinary conferences.

  • Daily: Fellows’ conference (didactic or case-based), Pediatric Neuroradiology Trainee conference
