PEDIATRIC NEURORADIOLOGY FELLOWSHIP: 2021-2022

 

The department of Radiology at the Children’s Hospital Colorado (CHCO), affiliated with the University of Colorado School of Medicine, is now accepting applications for a one-year pediatric neuroradiology fellowship position to outstanding candidates who have successfully completed either neuroradiology or pediatric radiology fellowship.

The Pediatric Neuroradiology Fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Colorado is a comprehensive training program comprised of clinical teaching and exposure to research designed to prepare fellows for futures in academic and non-academic medicine. With 7 pediatric neuroradiology faculty members, we provide one-on-one education in the performance and interpretation of neuroimaging studies across the pediatric spectrum, from fetal to adolescent life. Fellows will become proficient in both standard and advanced imaging techniques (fMRI, DTI, spectroscopy, perfusion, vessel wall imaging, APT, etc).

Over the course of the year, trainees will participate in a variety of multi-disciplinary conferences, including neurology, epilepsy, stroke, ENT, ophthalmology, genetics/metabolic, and neuro-oncology. They will have the opportunity to spend a one-month rotation with our distinguished neuropathologist, BK Kleinschmidt-DeMasters as well as 1-week observatories with neurosurgery and neuro-intensivists. Fellows participate in 12 weekends of call a year.

As one of the top pediatric hospitals in the country, the Children’s Hospital of Colorado is the main referral site for the greater Rocky Mountain region. It is home to one of the nation’s busiest pediatric emergency rooms and level 1 trauma centers for children. Our beautiful location, state-of-the-art facilities, and world-class faculty combine to create an unmatched teaching and learning environment. Annually, we perform approximately 10,000 MRI and 4,000 CT neuroradiology exams. Current imaging equipment includes 8 MRI scanners (Philips Ingenia 1.5T & 3T) as well as 5 CT scanners.

Eligible candidates should send a CV and two letters of recommendation to Katherine.Cornish@CUAnschutz.edu
