Pediatric Radiology Fellowship

Director: Jennifer Son, M.D 

The pediatric radiology fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

About the Division of Pediatric Radiology and Pediatric Neuroradiology

The Division of Pediatric Radiology and Pediatric Neuroradiology is dedicated to providing patient- and child-centered care for all age groups, from fetuses to young adolescents. Our goal is to provide the highest imaging quality while limiting or eliminating radiation exposure and maximizing safety for all children. Our team includes expert pediatric technologists, pediatric nurses, pediatric radiologists, a manager and child life specialists. We take advantage of all available imaging modalities, including conventional radiography, fluoroscopy, ultrasonography, CT, MRI and nuclear medicine studies.

The scope of our practice covers a wide variety of common and complex disorders, such as fetal anomalies, bone dysplasias, central nervous system pathologies, gastrointestinal and urologic pathologies, vascular anomalies, and trauma, to name a few. We take pride in spending face time with the children and their parents to inform them about their imaging and answer all questions they have at the time of their visit to our division.

Pediatric Radiology Fellowship Information

Fellowship Overview

Our pediatric radiology fellow works in a one-on-one setup with the assigned pediatric radiology attendings on service to maximize the learning experience. In addition to the multidisciplinary conferences, internal divisional case conferences (two to three times a week) and journal clubs, regular continuing medical education lectures take place (alternating weekly). The fellow is encouraged to work closely with the radiology residents that rotate in pediatric radiology to “learn as they teach” and prepare them for the next step in their career as independent pediatric radiologists. The fellow is required to participate and present in all of the above conferences, alternating between different teams weekly, to build presentation skills and rapport with the providing clinicians.

Our team has a very strong academic presence and leadership roles in national and international pediatric radiology and pediatric neuroradiology societies. Scientific publications in the topics mentioned above, but especially in pediatric neuroradiology, are encouraged and supported. The fellow will be provided with academic time and be assisted in presenting at national meetings and publishing in scientific journals. The Division of Pediatric Radiology financially supports the attendance at either the Society for Pediatric Radiology or Radiological Society of North America annual scientific meeting.
