Message from the Director

Thank you for your interest in the Neuroradiology fellowship at the University of Rochester Medical Center. As one of the nation’s leading academic medical centers and largest academic tertiary-care facility in Upstate New York, the University of Rochester Medical Center cares for patients with the highest standards of subspecialty clinical care and state-of-the-art imaging and supports over $135 million in National Institutes of Health (NIH) research grants.

This program offers an individualized educational experience to brain, spine, pediatric and head and neck imaging, as well as interventional neuroradiology. The fellows learn from an extensive breadth of pathology that draws from a diverse patient population who are treated at the 846-bed Strong Memorial Hospital, James P. Wilmot Cancer Center, and Golisano Children’s Hospital, as well as many regional hospitals and outpatient facilities. Due to the complexity of many of these disease processes, pediatric neuro and head and neck examinations are interpreted by dedicated specialists with sub-specialty training and expertise. In addition to the excellent case material, the University of Rochester is home to some of the nation’s leading departments in Neurology, Neurosurgery, Otolaryngology and Radiation Oncology, providing for an incredibly rich interdisciplinary learning experience. 

The Neuroradiology faculty are esteemed members of the Department of Imaging Sciences and have received multiple teaching awards from the Radiology Residency. The collegiality of the Neuroradiology faculty provides a supportive and inclusive learning environment. The faculty encourage fellows to take advantage of the strong radiology residency program, which allows fellows to focus on their specific learning objectives. While mastering the essentials of neuroimaging and neuro-intervention, the fellows may tailor their training to specific sub-specialty clinical and research interests over the course of their education by spending more time in those areas.

The Neuroradiology Fellowship Program at the University of Rochester offers an outstanding educational experience in a highly academic and collegial setting. The strengths of this program lie in the vast case material, the interdisciplinary and sub-specialty learning experience, and the opportunity to personalize your learning experience. We invite you to submit an application to our program.

Our program participates in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and the National Residency Match Program (NRMP). We have 2 ACGME approved PGY-6 positions in Neuroradiology. New fellows begin on 1 July. For more specific information, please contact our fellowship coordinator:
