The URMC Neuroradiology fellowship offers a one-year ACGME-certified in-depth educational experience in brain, spine, pediatric, and head and neck imaging, as well as interventional neuroradiology. The fellows learn alongside sub-specialty experts from an extensive breadth of pathology, rich interdisciplinary experience and weekly educational conferences. The program allows fellows to learn at a comfortable pace and personalize their learning objectives and educational experience.

What Our Graduates Say...

Anthony Portanova

"After completing my radiology residency at the University of Rochester, I stayed on for a Neuroradiology fellowship since I had developed such a great relationship with the Neuro faculty and was so impressed by their teaching. I loved the flexibility of the fellowship program which provided a great balance of procedures, general neuroradiology, and subspecialty training (Peds & ENT). After fellowship, it was my pleasure to join the faculty as a member of the Head/Neck subspecialty team. As a graduate of this program, it is a joy to teach the next generation of residents/fellows and pass my acquired knowledge onto them."
