Neuroradiology Fellowship Program
ACGME-Accredited, One Year Training
The ACGME-accredited neuroradiology fellowship is a one-year training program for individuals who have successfully completed a diagnostic radiology residency and are certified by or eligible for certification by the American Board of Radiology or hold an equivalent certificate. The training program is based at the University of Kentucky Medical Center, which also provides services to the Kentucky Children's Hospital. One fellow is accepted each year.
Scope of Training
The principal goal of the training program is to provide an organized, comprehensive, and supervised educational experience in all aspects of neuroradiology, including:
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Computed tomography (CT)
- Interventional procedures, including angiography and myelography
- Head and neck radiology, spine, and brain imaging
- Advanced central nervous system imaging, including MR spectroscopy, perfusion MRI, diffusion tensor Imaging, MR and CT perfusion, and angiography
Training and supervision is provided by American Board of Radiology certified faculty neuroradiologists with subspecialty certificates of added qualification in neuroradiology.
Academics and Research
Fellows participate in all aspects of the Department’s academic and research activities, including dedicated didactic conferences, Thursday morning conferences for interesting neuroradiology cases, advanced imaging, journal club and the completion of a mentored research and/or quality assurance project. Some of our neuroradiology faculty perform funded research enabling the fellow to become involved in ongoing research projects. In support of these pursuits, fellows are provided with instruction in research design/analytic methods and one-half day of dedicated non-clinical time per week, on average.
The Neuroradiology Service is actively involved in clinical and academic collaborative activities with the Departments of Neurology, Pediatrics, Head and Neck Surgery (Otolaryngology), Neurosurgery, and Neuropathology. In that vein, fellows also participate in a variety of multidisciplinary care conferences, including ENT-Oncology, Neuro-Oncology, Skull Base Pathology and Pediatric Tumor Board conferences.
