Fellowships in Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology
Please note: Positions for the 2013 Diagnostic Neuroradiology Fellowship program have been filled. We are currently accepting applications for 2014 through April 30th, 2013.
The at the University of Virginia offers ACGME-accredited fellowships in Neuroradiology to candidates who have completed an ACGME-accredited residency in Diagnostic Radiology. Board certification by the ABR or equivalent, as well as the ability to obtain a license to practice medicine in Virginia is also required. We participate in the Neuroradiology Radiology Fellowship Match administered by the National Residency Match Program (NRMP), and use the universal fellowship application designed by the Association of Program Directors in Radiology.
We offer five ACGME-accredited positions per year. Candidates can pursue one- or two-year positions in diagnostic neuroradiology, or three-year positions in interventional neuroradiology.
We follow the calendar set forth by the NRMP. Typically, interviews begin in late winter/early spring. Satisfactory completion of the fellowship fulfills requirements for senior membership in the American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR) and enables the candidate to sit for the Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) in Neuroradiology offered by the American Board of Radiology. Radiology residents who desire to begin a fellowship immediately following the completion of their residency should apply in the late fall/early winter of their third year of radiology residency. Unless exceptional circumstances warrant, a personal interview is required.
Our program offers five ACGME accredited positions per year. Interested candidates may apply for one- or two-year positions in diagnostic neuroradiology, or three-year positions in interventional neuroradiology (one year diagnostic neuroradiology followed by two years of full-time clinical neurointerventional experience.)
The purpose of the one-year program is to train fellows in all aspects of diagnostic neuroradiology: CT, MRI, advanced imaging techniques, head, neck and spine biopsies, diagnostic angiography, myelography, and percutaneous diagnostic procedures (biopsies, etc.). The fellows will gain experience in therapeutic neuroendovascular techniques through participation in that service and will be supported to pursue academic interests.
A two-year program is available to train future academic neuroradiologists. The second year is not a repeat of the first year, but rather an individualized program aimed at meeting the needs and interests of the second-year fellow, either in the research or in the teaching arena. Curriculum is created through a series of meetings with the fellow, the Program Director, and the Division Director and finalized a year in advance. Many fellowship applicants wish to be considered only for the one-year program. If applicants are interested in the two-year program, they should identify themselves as potential candidates as early as possible in the application process.
Interested radiology residents can contact Dr. Max Wintermark or Terry Johnson for further information regarding diagnostic neuroradiology fellowships, or Dr. Lee Jensen or Terry Johnson for information regarding interventional neuroradiology fellowships.
