Neuroradiology Fellowship

The Program

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 research.

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 DeMasters.

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 Equipment

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.
