About the Program

Content

Baylor College of Medicine, through its affiliate Texas Children's Hospital, offers a one-year fellowship in Pediatric Musculoskeletal Radiology accredited by the Texas Medical Board. With its recent $1.5 billion expansion program completed, Texas Children's is the largest children's hospital in the United States. In 2017, over 250 musculoskeletal MRIs per month were performed.

In addition, there is a large outpatient clinic representing all of the subspecialty pediatric services, including orthopedics/sports medicine, oncology and rheumatology; a new community hospital in the suburb of Katy, Texas (Texas Children's West Campus); and a new women’s hospital (Texas Children's Pavilion for Women) offering outpatient image-guided procedures. The fellowship includes rotations in pediatric and adolescent musculoskeletal CT and MRI, plain radiography and image-guided procedures, including joint injection and arthrography. A rotation in adolescent/sports medicine MRI will take place at neighboring Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center, and clinical electives with sports medicine and orthopedics will occur.

Fellows also participate in interdepartmental conferences and resident/medical student education. Radiology residents from Baylor and from The University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston rotate through the Radiology Department of Texas Children's for five-month and two-month periods, respectively. Residents from the Combined Armed Forces Program in Radiology in San Antonio also rotate here. In addition, elective time in pediatric radiology is available to medical students and to the pediatric residents.
