Overview

Overview

The Neuroradiology Fellowship Program is a one-year ACGME accredited training program that has been preparing world class neuroradiologists since 1979. Four fellowship positions are offered yearly.

Cleveland clinic is a large, top 5 nationally ranked tertiary medical care center with a high volume of complex neuroimaging studies performed annually. Our division reads over 3000 imaging studies per week and under the guidance of 20 experienced staff, fellows receive exceptional training and education in all aspects of neuroradiology.

The core rotations include CT, MRI, Taussig Cancer Center and Diagnostic Angiography which occur in two-week blocks. When rotating in the Taussig Cancer Center, fellows are exposed to a wide breadth of pre and post intervention oncologic imaging. Every 8th week is given to the fellows for research and/or academic pursuits. There are abundant research opportunities for trainees depending upon their interests.

Advanced imaging modalities commonly performed in our section include MR and CT Perfusion, Functional MRI, Diffusion Tensor Imaging, MR spectroscopy and High-resolution Vessel Wall imaging. A 7 Tesla MRI is used for both clinical and research purposes.

Fellows will participate in morning case conference and lecture as well as attend the weekly resident neuroradiology lectures. There are a number of tumor boards and clinical care interdisciplinary conferences that trainees can attend with leaders in various fields including neurosurgery, neurology, pediatric neurology, epilepsy, ENT, cerebrovascular/stroke and spine. There are ample teaching opportunities for the fellows with residents and also medical students from both Case Western and Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine.

Application requirements include completion of an ACGME accredited radiology residency and USMLE step three. All fellows must be eligible for a valid Ohio Medical License.

Fellows are evaluated by faculty on a quarterly basis and are required to evaluate the program on a semi-annual basis.
