Curriculum

As a member of Mount Sinai‚Äôs Neuroradiology Fellowship Program, you will receive training in all major aspects of neuroradiology of the course of the one-year fellowship.  Fellows will be able to hone their image interpretation skills, learn to interpret a wide variety of neuroradiology cases, learn to process and interpret advanced imaging cases, and gain comfort in performing a number of diagnostic and therapeutic neuroradiology procedures. Fellows derive from an extremely competitive candidate pool, radiologists who have distinguished themselves in academics and research, but we encourage applications from all applicants who feel that they may contribute to the diversity our program strives for. In addition, over the course of their training year our fellows learn to present cases clearly and effectively, which pays dividends twoards their acceptance as radiologists in their professional careers once they graduate.

Rotations

Inpatient = exposure to emergency, hospital and neurosurgical neuroradiologic imaging (CT/MR of brain and spine, stroke CTA/perfusion)

Outpatient = exposure to all outpatient neuroradiologic imaging studies (CT/MR of brain and spine, advanced imaging including MR spectroscopy, MR/CT perfusion, MR permeability, 3D reconstructions)

Head and Neck Imaging = exposure to all inpatient and outpatient head and neck imaging studies (CT/MR neck, sinuses, orbits; 3D reconstructions for pre-operative assessment; PET/CT neck)

Neurointerventional/Procedures = exposure to a variety of interventional procedures (cerebral angiograms, stroke intervention, carotid stenting, aneurysm coiling, kyphoplasty/vertbroplasty, spinal pain injections, spinal biopsies, head and neck/thyroid CT and US biopsies)

Evening Shift (until 11pm) = trainees interpret emergency and inpatient studies. Provides an opportunity for fellows to hone their interpreting skills, manage time effectively, and serve as the primary neuroradiology contact.  Fellows begin this rotation later in the day.
