This fellowship training is based at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and the main campus of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Fellows also rotate at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab.

The program is a continuation of training from the applicant’s previous ACGME-accredited first-year neuroradiology fellowship with:

  • More intense focus in advanced functional neuroimaging studies such as fMRI, DTI and perfusion imaging
  • Elective time in a particular focus, subspecialty or discipline as desired and chosen by the fellow
  • Opportunities for research and academic projects targeting publication and/or presentation at national conferences,
  • Junior faculty attending responsibilities

Our mission is to provide a pathway for interested applicants to gain experience in advanced diagnostic neuroradiology techniques and studies and/or to pursue an academic career in a focused area within neuroradiology, which often requires more in-depth training and time for research and publication.
