The mission of the University of Colorado School of Medicine is to
provide Colorado, the nation and the world with programs of excellence in
Education, Clinical Care and Research. Integral to this mission is the
Neuroradiology Fellowship Program, an ACGME accredited 1 year program offering
fellows comprehensive neuroradiology education, a wide variety of
neuroradiology clinical care experiences and opportunities for neuroscience
Education– 5 Adult, 4 Pediatric
neuroradiology faculty, and the department MR physicist actively participate in
the Neuroradiology Teaching Program, with weekly conferences covering various
topics in Neuroradiology. Fellows contribute to the AJNR fellow journal club
podcast series as one part of monthly section journal clubs and give both
didactic and case conferences to radiology residents. Fellows participate in a
unique monthly Neurology-Neuroradiology conference in which residents/fellows
from both services discuss interesting cases from clinical and radiographic
perspectives. The neuropathology rotation provides an opportunity for dedicated
training with internationally known neuropathologist Beverly Kleinschmidt
Clinical care– University of Colorado
Hospital is the #1 ranked hospital in Colorado and is an AHA certified
comprehensive stroke center, and Children’s Hospital is ranked among the top 5
best Children’s Hospitals in the US. Fellows actively participate in weekly
multidisciplinary conferences with neurosurgery, neuro-oncology,
otolaryngology, and radiation-oncology. Fellows become proficient in perfusion
imaging for stroke and neurooncologic cases, and work in team settings to plan,
process and implement presurgical fMRI & DTI studies each week.
Research– Neuroradiology faculty are
involved in a wide range of neuroscience research including structural and functional
studies of substance abuse, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and
other neurodegenerative diseases. Other focuses include web based teaching
methods and 3D image manipulation. Dr. Tanabe is a senior editor at the AJNR.
Fellows regularly present research abstracts at the ASNR Annual Meeting.
Our CT complement includes Philips 40 slice and 64 slice units in the Anschutz Inpatient Pavilion (AIP) and Siemens 16 slice and 64 slice units in the Anschutz Outpatient Pavilion (AOP). The 40 slice unit in the AIP will be upgraded to a 64 slice unit in the near future.
The MRI facilities include two Siemens 1.5 Tesla magnets at the AOP and one GE 3 Tesla magnet at the AIP. An additional Philips 1.5 Tesla magnet for the AIP is expected in the near future, as well as a new Philips 3 Tesla magnet for an outpatient imaging facility at Colorado Center.
We are currently offering positions through the Neuroradiology Fellowship Match, and will be following the rules and timetable of the Match. We are accepting applications for the academic year 2017-2018 from September 1 - December 31, 2015.
