The Neuroradiology Fellowship Program will be offering an open house on Wednesday, November 16 via Zoom. Please register here using an institution-issued email address.
Neuroradiology offers a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship program which includes training in cognitive and procedural diagnostic neuroradiology.
Fulfilling the threefold objective of the Vanderbilt University Medical Center—education, patient care, and research—is the aim of the Neuroradiology Fellowship Program. The purpose of clinical rotations is to help fellows build a solid foundation of knowledge, acquire technical proficiency, and construct decision-making and consultative abilities. Patient care is of utmost importance, both directly through imaging and special procedures and indirectly through consulting. The program offers clinical observations and results, as well as research opportunities in fields ranging from basic science laboratories to cutting-edge imaging. The successful completion of the fellowship program will prepare the graduate for a career in academia in radiology, the development of subspecialty knowledge and abilities as an advanced clinical fellow or lecturer, or entry into community neuroradiology practice.
During their rotation, fellows experience fluoroscopy, CT-directed spine operations, adult magnetic resonance imaging, adult computed tomography imaging, and pediatric neuroradiology. Brain, spine, and head and neck imaging are all included in each assignment. The Neuro Reading Room serves as the center of the neuroradiology division.
On January 13, 2023, a Friday, and January 19, 2023, a Thursday, there will be interviews. This year, all fellowship opportunities will be filled through virtual interviews in compliance with departmental policy and COVID-19.
The Office of Graduate Medical Education keeps a current posting of house officers’ salaries and benefits. Their webpage also has other resources for house officers.
The fellow is in charge of taking part in official resident education. The neuroradiology faculty and fellows choose the topics for the lunchtime conference. The fellow also helps with the fundamental first-year resident orientation lectures at 7 a.m. Additionally, case presentations at clinical conferences are the fellow’s responsibility.
Night and weekend call is taken from home a full week at a time approximately every four weeks. An in-house night hawk reads most trauma exams in the evenings and the weekends On both Saturday and Sunday, all neuro cases available for interpretation are read out which usually takes the entire day. An attending neuroradiologist is present with the fellow for any procedures and reviews all dictated studies.
There will be opportunities for research in all areas of neuroradiology, including clinical MR and CT interventional neuroradiology, and research MR (in conjunction with the Vanderbilt University Institute of Imaging Science, that includes a whole body 7T magnet).
