About the Program

The neuroradiology fellowship provides educational experiences following guidelines set forth by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education, the gold-standard in physician education.  Core competencies are integrated into the program to provide evidence of the program’s effectiveness in educating competent physicians to meet the healthcare needs of the public.

Fellows are required to demonstrate competence in six core areas to the level expected of an independent practitioner:  

  • Patient Care
  • Medical Knowledge
  • Practice-based learning and Improvement
  • Interpersonal and Communication skills
  • Professionalism
  • Systems-based practice

As board-certified radiologists, fellows begin taking on progressive responsibility for interpreting, planning and performing procedures from the start of the program.  The program enhances that training with advanced clinical responsibilities as competency is demonstrated.  

We have a large patient population and fellows will participate in a large number of diagnostic and therapeutic interventional procedures. There are weekly departmental conferences in neuroradiology, interdepartmental conferences and monthly conferences in clinical neurosciences.  Fellows participate in the teaching of residents and in the planning of regularly scheduled subspecialty conferences, seminars and clinical/basic science instruction, including:

  • Neurology conferences
  • Brain tumor board conferences
  • Spine conferences
  • Neurovascular conferences
  • Radiology conferences
  • Core curriculum lectures
  • Head and neck conferences
  • City Neuro club
