Fellowship Training Program

The two-year CAST certified Endovascular Neuroradiology Fellowship Program is designed to provide a comprehensive educational experience in all aspects of Neurointerventional care, while promoting clinical research. With a combined faculty consisting of an interventional neurologist and two endovascular neurosurgeons, the fellows are exposed to and actively participate in the entire spectrum of neurointervenional care. This spectrum includes the most current endovascular techniques and technologies for the treatment of cerebral aneurysms, AVMs, spinal vascular malformations, tumors, acute stroke and atherosclerotic diseases of the cervical and intracranial vessels. Additional expertise in spinal vertebroplasty and treatment of tumors of the head and neck further enhance the fellows’ educational experience.

Recognized as a Comprehensive Stroke Center in the state of New Jersey, University Hospital provides fellows with an opportunity to not only train in a high-volume environment and use the most current technologies available, but also to perform mentored clinical research in all venues of cerebrovascular disease. 

The goals of the Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology Fellowship are centered on patient care and research, and education. To that end, scholarly activities in anatomy and radiation physics are being developed that will serve as the basis for education of all fellows. 

Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology at Rutgers continues to be a pioneer in this ever-expanding field. With multiple IRB protocols and upcoming participation in multi-center randomized trials, Rutgers NJMS’s program will continue to grow as the leading institution in the state and be at the country’s forefront of education and patient care. The program will certainly provide you with the necessary skills and knowledge that will allow you to become a leader in the field.
