Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology Fellowship

The 2-year fellowship in endovascular neurosurgery focuses on hands-on clinical experience under the direct guidance of experienced attendings in neurological surgery, neurology, and radiology. Common cases include ruptured/unruptured aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, atherosclerotic disease, and acute stroke intervention.

In addition to clinical responsibilities, fellows are expected to teach junior residents, engage in research, and stay abreast of recent literature. The academic calendar of both the department and the university offers a broad array of educational opportunities, including weekly Grand Rounds, case conference, and research seminars. A complete endovascular simulator is also available for fellows through the Center for Future Surgery. 

Qualified candidates from multiple specialties are welcome to apply. Generally, a candidate should be near the end of an ACGME certified residency or fellowship and have had general training in clinical neuroscience as well as specialized training in neurocritical care, stroke, and neuroradiology.

Only one position is available per year.

We are currently accepting applications for positions starting in July 2019. Interested candidates should submit the following documents:

  • Current curriculum vitae
  • Three letters of recommendations
  • Personal statement
  • Official copy of USMLE/COMLEX scores
  • For international graduates, please include J1 visa status
