Active Fellowship Dates: July 2017–2018 and July 2018-2019
The goal of our Neuroradiology Fellowship program is to provide candidates the opportunity to expand their clinical and academic skills in neuroradiology to the level of junior faculty. We hope to create a training environment that is both rigorous and inspiring, with an emphasis on teamwork and shared commitment to excellence. It is our departmental goal to be state-of-the-art in Diagnostic and Interventional patient care, to achieve regional and national recognition in academics.
Length of program
The candidate prerequisite training for entry into a diagnostic radiology subspecialty program should include the satisfactory completion of a diagnostic radiology residency accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC).
Other training pathways can and will be considered by the Program Director on a case-by-case basis. We seek the best quality candidates and recognize that they may come from a variety of backgrounds and training.
Four positions are available.
