The Division of Neuroradiology is committed to excellence in patient care and clinical service in an academic setting. Integration of neuroimaging and clinical data in the fields of neurology, neurosurgery, neuro-ophthalmology, and otorhinolaryngology is a strength of the program as is its broad pediatric experience in neuroradiology. The Division is composed of nine CAQ certified faculty members including section heads for interventional neuroradiology, head and neck imaging, and research. The faculty is dedicated to teaching and is committed to the highest standards of care.
The neuroradiology fellowship training program at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center is a 2-year training program. The extensive curriculum includes research, clinical, and teaching opportunities. The program offers trainees graded clinical responsibility in the interpretation of non invasive neuroimaging studies (CT, MRI) and in performing and interpreting special neuroradiological procedures: myelography, angiography, spinal and cerebral embolizations, vertebroplasty, CT guided biopsy and nerve root blocks. Increasing responsibility for clinical consultations, conferences, and performance of procedures is given as the fellow gains experience with time.
A wide variety of inpatient and outpatient neurological imaging is performed at our institution. We work closely with our brain, skull base, spine, and ENT surgical colleagues as well as our adult and pediatric neurologists. Cases referred daily from the Children's Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) provide fellows with extensive experience in pediatric neuroradiology. Fellows gain clinical experience in the use of advanced MR imaging techniques including MR perfusion, diffusion tensor imaging, fMRI and MR spectroscopy.
There is an active neuroradiology conference schedule including introductory courses on MRI physics and diagnostic cerebral angiography, pediatric and adult brain tumor board, head and neck tumor board, and journal club. Many educational and research opportunities are available to interested fellows. Several fellows in recent years have presented and published their work and have received prizes at national scientific meetings.
If you wish to join our fellowship program, the expectation is a two-year commitment to complete the full 24 month curriculum.
Salary and Benefits
Montefiore Medical Center offers a competitive salary and benefits package, including four weeks of vacation and one funded conference week for fellows.
