The Neuroradiology Fellowship at Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology (MIR) is a comprehensive training program designed to prepare fellows to enter either academic or private practice. Under the supervision of subspecialty-trained neuroradiology faculty, fellows gain expertise in all aspects of adult and pediatric clinical neuroradiology, including brain, spine, head/neck and neurovascular imaging. There is ample opportunity to gain experience in spinal and angiographic procedures and the neuroradiology section has a strong background in incorporating new technologies into clinical care. Fellows learn about emerging research and translational imaging techniques from leaders in their fields, including resting-state fMRI, diffusion tensor imaging, dementia imaging, and vessel wall imaging. Fellows investigate an aspect of neuroradiology through mentored scholarly projects chosen from neuroradiology education, clinical research or basic science research. Principles of physician wellness are promoted by fostering a collegial work environment, providing academic time to pursue scholarly interests and creating a schedule that balances clinical work with personal time off.
Fellows spend the majority of their time at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospital at Washington University Medical Center. Both hospitals are large, nationally-recognized tertiary care hospital with excellent clinical programs in neurology, neurosurgery, oncology, otolaryngology, ophthalmology and orthopedic surgery. Fellows rotate to a community teaching hospital, Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital, for additional experience in head and neck imaging as well as community radiology. The Siteman Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute Comprehensive Cancer Center, is also located at the Washington University Medical Center. Imaging is performed in both hospital- and outpatient-based imaging facilities on state-of-the-art equipment that includes 19 Siemens MR scanners (six 3T magnets) and several Siemens CT scanners, including dual-energy platforms. In addition, MIR has a Siemens PET/MR unit that is used for both clinical care and research applications.
MIR's Neuroradiology Fellowship participates in the NRMP Match Program. Applicants for the 2022/2023 Diagnostic Neuroradiology class should apply through the ERAS Application system beginning July, 2020. Applications will be reviewed on December 1, 2020 and the applicants will be selected for virtual interviews (due to Covid-19) between January and March, 2021.
