Expertise in most aspects of General Pediatric Radiology (excluding Neuroradiology, Interventional radiology, and Nuclear medicine) is required.

Clinical responsibilities include all areas of Pediatric Radiology (radiographs, fluoroscopy, ultrasound, CT, and MRI). Clinical service coverage is divided between UC Davis Children’s Hospital and Shriners Hospitals for Children. Daily and call coverage is divided equally among all faculty within the division. Most teaching is conducted during daily read out sessions with residents.
