In addition to complying with the GME Physician Well-Being & Impairment Policy, the Pediatric Radiology Program supports specific activities to encourage optimal resident and faculty member well-being. These include fellow mentorship by core faculty, the Annual Department of Radiology Resident and Faculty Retreat. Additionally, each fellow completes training modules on fatigue during New Fellow Orientation and the program has a process in place whereby a fellow with concerns about excessive fatigue or stress may receive personal counseling from the Program Director or receive referral to resources offered by the Colorado Physician Health Program (CPHP).
The program educates faculty members and fellows in the identification of the symptoms of burnout, depression, and substance abuse, in themselves and others, including methods to assist those who experience these conditions by way of Non-Interpretive Skills (NIS) lectures and Fellow Meetings.
If another resident, fellow, or faculty member may be displaying signs of burnout, depression, substance abuse, suicidal ideation, or potential for violence, this must be reported to the Program Director or to an Associate Program Director.
The Pediatric Section loves to celebrate it's trainees and our shared accomplishments. We are a welcoming group that likes to get together! Each year we have a welcome picnic for all our fellows, as well as a graduation celebration. We also have a holiday party and an appreciation event for our Radiology Techs!
For more than three decades, thousands of cyclists have come together to conquer mountains and raise more than $50 million for Children’s Hospital Colorado over the years in the annual Courage Classic Bicycle Tour. Our very own Dr. Melanie Levin spearheads our Pediatric Radiology team every year!
This year’s theme is extra special: Courage Can’t Be Stopped because in the face of adversity, medical challenges, and even a global pandemic...
The courage of the kids, families, and caregivers for whom we “ride” cannot be stopped.
And neither can our committed Courage Classic community.
This year’s distance-based virtual tour format will broaden the possibilities beyond what any of us ever dreamed. While we encourage you to continue to keep the incredible tradition of cycling alive – around the block, in your basement on your Peloton, or out on the trails or roads for the full tour mileage – we know that this will be challenging for some. Whatever challenging activity you choose, set a distance-based goal – and you can ride, spin, run, hike, swim, row, walk or go the distance for children’s health in whatever way you choose to support Children’s Colorado.
