OUR LADY’S HOSPITAL FOR SICK CHILDREN, CRUMLIN, DUBLIN, IRELAND
ONE YEAR PAEDIATRIC RADIOLOGY FELLOWSHIP
OLHSC Crumlin is offering a one year Fellowship in Paediatric Radiology in a recognised tertiary referral teaching hospital commencing 1st July 2014.
OLHSC is the largest paediatric tertiary referral hospital in the country (243 beds), offering many specialty services. It is the National Referral Centre for paediatric oncology/haematology, cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, genetics, and hepatology, with very busy units serving neonatal and general paediatric surgery and urology together with orthopaedics, neurology, respirology, neonatology and infectious diseases amongst others. Our busy A/E department sees over 30,000 children per annum.
The Radiology department has 5 (4.7WTE) paediatric radiology consultants, and over 20 radiographers. A dedicated principal grade physicist is on site. More than 50,000 examinations are performed each year. Our department has undergone major redevelopment, with a new building housing a Siemens 1.5 T Avanto MRI scanner; a Philips Skylight gamma camera, and a new Philips Ingenuity CT. We have a Siemens Axiom Iconos pulsed fluoroscopy unit, three Ultrasound rooms, a mobile ultrasound unit, three general rooms and biplane angiography. We are now part of the NIMIS PACS network.
During their rotation with us, the Fellow will gain experience in all aspects of paediatric radiology. They will be rostered to participate in all of the imaging modalities, under close supervision of the consultants. They will be expected to have close interaction with the paediatric medical and surgical teams. They will organise and present material at the multidisciplinary conferences. They will partake in teaching their paediatric colleagues, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. They will participate on the on-call roster, again under close supervision of the consultants who carry out the first on call duties.
They will have at least one protected research session per week and will have full access to the extensive library and other facilities of the Children’s Research Centre. They will be expected and encouraged to submit their research findings to national and international meetings.
While the year is accredited for those who are eligible to complete their CSST training in Ireland, individuals would need to check with their own training bodies to determine if this Fellowship will contribute to CCST in their own programme.
It will be possible to meet some of the department at ESPR June 2014.
