Neuroradiology Fellowship

Neuroradiology Fellowship

Neuroradiology offers a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship program which includes training in cognitive and procedural diagnostic neuroradiology.

The goal of the Neuroradiology Fellowship Program is to fulfill the three-fold mission of the Vanderbilt University Medical Center - education, patient care, and research. Clinical rotations are designed to enable the fellow to accumulate a broad base of knowledge, develop technical skills, and establish decision making and consultation skills. The overriding concern is patient care, both direct through imaging and special procedures and indirect as consultant. The program provides research opportunities ranging from the basic science laboratory to high tech imaging, as well as clinical observations and outcomes. The graduate of the fellowship program is well suited for an academic career in radiology, advancement of subspecialty knowledge and skills as an advanced clinical fellow or instructor, or entering the practice of neuroradiology in the community.

Fellows rotate through adult computed tomography (CT) imaging, adult magnetic resonance imaging, fluoroscopy, CT-directed spine procedures, and pediatric neuroradiology. Each assignment includes imaging of the brain, spine, and head and neck. The hub of the neuroradiology section is the Neuro Reading Room.

  • Thank you for your interest in the Vanderbilt University Medical Center Neuroradiology Fellowship.

    All fellowship interviews will be virtual. Please reach out to the fellowship team if you have any questions. We look forward to receiving your application. 

    Applications for fellowship should be submitted via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) for the December application cycle. All relevant NRMP match dates apply (more info).

  • Night and weekend call is taken from home a full week at a time approximately every four weeks. An in-house Emergency Radiologist reads most trauma exams in the evenings and the weekends. On both Saturday and Sunday, all neuro cases available for interpretation interpreted by the on-call team, comprised of faculty, fellow, and residents.
