The curriculum for the Neuroradiology Fellowship is designed to provide fellows with extensive hands-on training in a wide range of advanced clinical procedures.
An average of nearly 50,000 exams are performed each year in the Neuroradiology Section of the Department of Radiology at Wake Forest School of Medicine. Our faculty provides one-on-one education and support allowing fellows the opportunity to master all aspects of interpretation and procedures.
The fellowship contains a mixture of clinical and procedure-oriented experiences. The rotations are in two-week blocks for a total of:
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - three months
- Computerized tomography (CT) - three months
- CT/Procedure – three months
- MRI/CT – two months
- Research or electives - one month
