Neuroradiology Fellowship Program Goals
The Neuroradiology Fellowship Program at University of Massachusetts provides trainees with an in depth one year comprehensive training experience and offers exposure to all aspects of neuroradiology practice. The goals of Fellowship are education, patient care, professionalism and research.
Clinical rotations are designed to enable the fellows to accumulate a broad base of knowledge, develop technical skills and establish decision making and consultation skills. The rotations provide the fellow with the opportunity to develop, under supervision, progressively independent skills in the performance and interpretation of neuroradiologic imaging studies and invasive procedures.
The Fellowship Program trains fellows to be able to interact with their referring physicians and function in their future consultative role. This is accomplished during the day to day activities at the hospital. Fellows are an integral part of many interdepartmental conferences.
Another important educational objective of the Program is to have the fellows exposed to and participate in ongoing research projects within the section. Fellows are encouraged to submit abstracts/papers.
At the conclusion of the fellowship, the fellow should be capable of independent and accurate clinical decision-making in all areas of Neuroradiology.
