The Neuroradiology fellowship at the University of California, San Diego is a ACGME-certified clinical fellowship, which provides training in state-of-the-art neuroimaging and neurointerventional radiology. The fellow will spend 4 months of training in neurointerventional radiology (neurovascular and spinal procedures), and the rest in diagnostic neuroimaging including brain, spine, head/neck, and pediatric neuroradiology.
 
UCSD Medical Center consists of a 450-bed hospital with all subspecialties represented. We are a Level I Trauma Center, Stroke Center, Epilepsy Center, Head/Neck Tumor Referral Center, Transplant Center, Burn Center, NCI designated Cancer Center and Tertiary Referral Center; we also perform essentially all advanced/functional neuroimaging for the San Diego metropolitan area. In addition, fellows, faculty, and residents provide clinical services at the San Diego Veterans Medical Center. Imaging modalities include CT, structural and advanced-technique MRI (multiple 1.5T and 3T scanners), neuroangiography and spinal interventions, and magnetoencephalography. Fellows also are expected to teach and present at conferences.

Our fellowship is approved by the American Society of Neuroradiology and accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Our neuroradiology program incorporates UC San Diego Medical Center, the VA Medical Center, and the Thornton Hospital, which have active Neurosurgery, Neurology, ENT, and Spine services. All hospitals are equipped with state-of-the-art imaging equipment for MR, CT, and neuro-diagnostic and interventional angiography. The section of Neuroradiology is actively involved in Magnetoencephalography (MEG), Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and the Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) Research Center.
