One 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, arteriovenous 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 Siemens biplane fluoroscopy units and a dedicated procedural CT scanner.
INR fellow works closely with three (3) 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.
PLEASE NOTE: In addition to the universal application form, we require a copy of each candidates CV and a personal statement. One of the 3 letters of recommendation must be from the candidate’s residency program director. In addition, we require copies of the dean's letter and transcript from medical school, proof of graduation from medical school, U.S. Medical Licensing Examination board scores, and Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates certificate (when applicable).
Effective 2016 ACGME will only accept U.S. ACGME accredited residency graduates for consideration in our fellowship program
