More Initiatives

Exchange programme for Pediatric Radiology Fellowships

The European School of Radiology (ESOR) and the ESPR offer 4 grants to attend an exchange programme for fellowships or subspecialisation training in paediatric radiology.

The need to attract, train and help qualify young radiologists to render confident practice of the diverse multimodality age focussed subspeciality imaging has never been more important. This has prompted the European Society of Radiology (ESR) and the European Society of Paediatric Radiology (ESPR) to take the initiative in establishing an exchange programme for fellowships or subspecialisation training in paediatric imaging.

The programme offers an opportunity to complement subspecialisation training in paediatric imaging or an existing fellowship programme in this field of radiology. Through three months of training the trainee will be provided with intense modular training in paediatric imaging and will be supervised by a specialised tutor in a pre-selected, highly esteemed, academic training centre in Europe.
