Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology Fellowship
The University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) offers a one-year, ACGME-accredited Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology (ESN) Fellowship open to applicants from Radiology, Neurology, and Neurosurgery. The fellowship can be a 2- or 3-year pathway for Neurology track applicants who may complete the required stroke, preliminary year, and accredited ESN fellowships here at UMMC. The fellowship can be a 2-year pathway for Radiology track applicants who may complete the required neuroradiology and ESN fellowship years here at UMMC.
UMMC is a busy academic, tertiary care medical center and is one of the busiest trauma facilities in the country as well as a large referral center from collaborating community hospitals. The fellowship offers an extensive experience in endovascular as well as percutaneous procedures. Our section performs a large number of diagnostic cerebral angiograms and embolization procedures for intracranial aneurysms, vascular malformations, blunt and penetrating trauma as well as preoperative embolization of vascular head and neck neoplasms. In addition, fellows also gain experience with spinal percutaneous procedures including vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, RF ablation, and pain procedures.
The fellow works closely with three dedicated interventional neuroradiologists with extensive experience in the field and an experienced nurse practitioner. We now also have a vascular neurosurgeon on our team who performs both open and endovascular neurosurgical treatments. There is significant emphasis on teaching. In addition to daily clinical teaching, our section participates in a weekly didactic lecture schedule, a weekly stroke conference, and a visiting professor program.
There are a number of opportunities for research with the faculty members and the fellows receive mentoring in creating research studies and presenting their work. Prospective research projects are underway with the industry, and fellow participation is strongly encouraged.
