Neurointerventional Radiology

Fellows learn to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions, including brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, dural arteriovenous fistulas, extra- and intracranial atherosclerotic disease and ischemic stroke. Our service is closely integrated with the departments of neurological surgery and neurology. More than 1,000 diagnostic angiographies and 300 interventional cases, including 150 aneurysm cases, are performed annually, and our stroke caseload increases every year. Supervised by four full-time attendings, fellows learn hands-on through a high-volume caseload in two biplane neuroangiographic suites with full flat panel and 3D capabilities.

The one-year ACGME-accredited program requires a prerequisite diagnostic neuroradiology fellowship for candidates from diagnostic radiology programs. Applicants from neurosurgery and neurology require a prerequisite year of training in catheter angiography and vascular imaging. Weekly didactic, stroke and vascular conferences, and monthly events include an endovascular acute stroke committee and a morbidity and mortality conference.

  • Two fellows are graduated from the program per academic year.
  • There are opportunities to pursue research with direct attending faculty mentorship ranging across the spectrum from basic science to clinical outcome studies. There is a research project requirement prior to graduation with appropriate guidance early in the fellowship to meet this requirement.
  • Post-training is about 70% private practice, 30% academic

Fellows are required to take call from home every other day (Q2). Depending on the number of neurology, neurosurgery and radiology junior fellows available to share call, this call could be every third or fourth day (Q3 or Q4). However, the junior fellows only take call typically in the second quarter of the academic year once they have achieved a level of competency deemed appropriate by the program director and attendings.

MIR offers a wide range of helpful resources and competitive benefits for trainees.
