Neuroradiology Fellowship

Welcome to the University of Louisville Neuroradiology Fellowship website!

The University of Louisville Neuroradiology Fellowship Program strives to produce well rounded neuroradiologists with exposure to all facets of neuroradiology and closely aligned disciplines, who are able to excel in either an academic or private practice setting. We are committed to maintaining a high level of diversity and continuing to cultivate an environment of inclusion. We aim to provide excellent patient care to our community, achieved by providing fellows with a comprehensive educational curriculum combined with a vast patient population afforded by University of Louisville's Hospital's accredited Level 1 trauma center, stroke center and cancer center, and multiple specialty clinics, Jewish Hospital, Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and Norton Children's Hospital. Our Program also strives to support for fellows' academic accomplishments which will provide a framework for their future endeavors.

Curriculum

Drawing from the diverse experience and depth of our faculty who have trained and practiced in varied settings nationwide, as well as our strong referral services in the setting of a comprehensive cancer program, comprehensive stroke center as well as a level 1 trauma center, we meticulously re-imagined and designed this fellowship to provide an innovative comprehensive neuroradiology education in an academic setting with a contemporary multidisciplinary focus. In addition to core rotations comprising head, neck, brain and vascular neuroradiology, there are rotations in neuropathology and radiation oncology that round up a rich and comprehensive fellowship.

Advanced neuroimaging studies include MR spectroscopy, functional MRI, tractography, MR and CT perfusion, as well as molecular imaging (nuclear medicine/PET). A free-standing Clinical and Translational Research building next to UofL Hospital incorporates a full-size 3T MRI research scanner as well as 9-Tesla MRI and high-resolution PET-CT for small animal imaging.

Procedural experience includes catheter angiographic experience with neurosurgery, spinal taps and myelograms, vertebral augmentations and biopsies in conjunction with interventional radiology, and an elective procedural rotation in pain medicine. Pediatric neuroradiology will be at Norton Children’s Hospital, a pediatric level 1 trauma center that is already the home of all UofL pediatric programs. These are complemented by a strong didactic program, regular multidisciplinary conferences, and research opportunities.

Research

Many prospects for neuroradiology research are available at the University of Louisville, and fellows are encouraged to take part in these opportunities. If a project leads to presentation at a national meeting, the Department will offset the cost in accordance with University guidelines.

Call Responsibilities

In-house call includes weekend daytime call, typically 8am-5pm 13 weekends/year, and extended shift 5-8pm 1-2 days per week. Night float is not a part of this program currently.
