The majority of the fellowship is spent rotating through neuroimaging and neurointervention at the hospital and the Imaging Center. Rotations are also provided in pediatric neurosonography, neuropathology, PET, and research.
The training program includes a variety of didactic teaching experiences for the trainee. These include case conferences, formal lectures in neuroradiology and physics, journal clubs, and interdepartmental conferences such as clinical neuroscience rounds, tumor board, and mortality and morbidity conferences.

- understand the indications and contraindications for neuroimaging and neurointerventional studies and procedures including CT, MRI,myelography, ultrasonography, PET, and angiography
- experience in interpretation of neuroimaging studies including CT, MRI, myelography, ultrasonography, PET, and angiography
- performing and interpreting diagnostic and therapeutic neuroradiologic procedures including cerebral and spinal angiography, myelography, discography, biopsies, image-guided spinal pain management, vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, and neurointerventional
- perform preprocedural clinical evaluation of patients and providing postprocedural care
- experience in communicating with patients, referring physicians, and other medical personnel
