The Department of Radiology at Wake Forest School of Medicine offers an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited fellowship in neuroradiology for up to four candidates who have completed an ACGME-accredited residency in Diagnostic Radiology.

We are well known for our excellent clinical education in a collegial atmosphere. Using state-of-the-art clinical equipment and one-on-one education, fellows will master subspecialty level neuroradiology interpretation, pathophysiology, and advanced imaging techniques.  We also offer an optional second-year neuroradiology fellowship (NF2) for those interested.

Program Goals

Upon completion of the program, each resident will be able to:

  • Interpret MRI, CT, vascular imaging, myelograms, and neuroangiography in the most complicated and difficult cases encountered in clinical practice
  • Understand the functional neuroanatomy of the brain, spine and head and neck
  • Understand the physical principles underlying advanced neuroimaging modalities
  • Be able to perform procedures such as fluoroscopy-guided lumbar puncture and myelograms, ultrasound-guided biopsies of the head and neck, and spine interventions
  • Have good general knowledge of related neuroimaging techniques, such as single-photo emission computed tomography (SPECT), positron emission tomography (PET), carotid and cerebral ultrasonography
  • Be able to design and modify CT and MR protocols as new techniques are developed
  • Be familiar with scientific data and issues debated in current neuroradiology literature
  • Design and complete a research project or scholarly activity
  • Develop skills and confidence in teaching other physicians about neuroimaging and lead multidisciplinary conferences

The fellowship experience encompasses a broad clinical exposure to all aspects of modern diagnostic and therapeutic neuroradiology.

Mentoring and Support 

The Neuroradiology Fellowship program is highly committed to being inclusive and to the recruitment and retention of fellows of a diverse background. Here at Wake Forest School of Medicine, we offer the Kennedy Hopkins Scholars Mentor Program that provides professional and personal support for underrepresented minority residents and fellows.
