Neuroradiology Fellowship Application Process

The Department of Radiology at Wake Forest School of Medicine offers a one-year neuroradiology fellowship starting July 1 and ending June 30 of the following year.

Radiology residents who’d like to begin a fellowship immediately following the completion of their residency should apply in the late fall or early winter of their third year of radiology residency.

Application Process

We participate in the Neuroradiology Fellowship Match administered by the National Residency Match Program (NRMP) and use the universal fellowship application designed by the Association of Program Directors in Radiology.

Minimum qualifications include successful completion of a diagnostic radiology residency, board certification by the American Board of Radiology (ABR) or equivalent and the ability to obtain a license to practice medicine in North Carolina. A personal interview is required unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Candidates who are selected for an interview will be notified by email of available interview dates. Interviews are offered on a rolling basis after completed applications have been received, therefore it is recommended to complete applications early.

Submitting an Application

  1. Complete the ERAS application
  2. Complete your match profile on NRMP

Please note you will need to use your AAMC ID from your ERAS application to register for the NRMP. 

Completed applications, letters of recommendation, and supporting documents should be addressed to Dr. Lack.

For all other questions, including requests for application materials as well as inquiries about the process, interview arrangements, or the receipt of materials, please send an email to Ms. Sandra Smith.
