One or two year fellowship positions in Interventional Neuroradiology are available at the University of Maryland Medical System. The fellowship offers the rare opportunity for direct involvement in a high volume of cases, including treatment of un-ruptured and ruptured intracranial aneurysms, acute intracranial stroke, traumatic vascular lesions of the head and neck, arterio-venous malformations and fistulae, tumor embolization, epistaxis, as well as other endovascular procedures.
Spinal procedures include biopsy, percutaneous pain interventions, spine RFA and vertebral augmentation. Additional procedures treated include superficial vascular malformations. The INR department typically runs 1 to 3 interventional suites simultaneously throughout a given day, performing an average of 1500 procedures in a year. There are two dedicated Seimens biplane fluoroscopy units and a dedicated procedural CT scanner.
INR fellow works closely with three attendings and an INR nurse practitioner. The goal of the fellowship is to allow the fellow to gradually function nearly independently with graded assistance from the attending. Residents may rotate through the INR service as well, while the INR fellow remains the primary assistant on most cases throughout the year. The department works closely with the Neurology and Neurosurgery services. Additionally, we have the unique opportunity to collaborate with the Shock Trauma Hospital, a world-renowned trauma care center.
Inquires regarding the fellowship should be made to the fellowship coordinator, Linda Edmonds, or fellowship director, Gaurav Jindal, MD. Required documents for application include a standard NRMP fellowship application form, curriculum vitae, USMLE and/or ECFMG transcript, medical school dean’s letter, and two to three letters of reference.
