Application, Curriculum and Benefits

The Neuroradiology Fellowship Program at Indiana University School of Medicine offers trainees the a beneficial an engaging experience that instills possibility as they navigate into their careers as neuroradiologists. Program faculty regularly collaborate with multiple neurosciences specialists to coordinate care, improve education for fellows and contribute to a variety of neuroradiology research projects. With subject-matter experts, this program excels in providing outstanding education and training to fellows. The department values a strong, enthusiastic work ethic and looks forward to helping future fellows achieve their goals as in the field of radiology.


To apply for a Neuroradiology Fellowship at IU School of Medicine, interested physicians must submit the required documents through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS), reference program ID #4231721028.


Program Requirements

Fellows choose a faculty mentor for one mandatory research project per ACGME requirements. This project is presented at the annual Campbell-Klatte conference in the spring of each academic year and submitted for presentation at a national meeting or publication in a peer-refereed journal. Fellows have 20 academic days in their first year and 40 academic days in the second year to complete these research projects.

Educational development for fellows occurs daily at the workstation, where they are encouraged to teach residents. Fellows are also responsible for presenting case conferences and journal club discussions throughout the year. This program is designed to help fellows solidify their knowledge and future practice habits by adequately preparing and teaching subjects in neuroimaging.

Clinical rotations consist of 13 four-week blocks that include coverage at tertiary-care hospitals, where advanced diagnostic imaging occurs, and neurointerventional procedures. Rotations occur at a large private hospital with a level I trauma center, a tertiary adult hospital, a tertiary children’s hospital with a level I trauma center, head and neck imaging, and advanced neuroimaging.

Call Schedule

Neuroradiology fellows participate in four-week clinical rotations, including advanced/general neuroimaging, neurointerventional, pediatric neuroradiology, evening neuroradiology, and head and neck imaging.

  • Advanced/General Neuroimaging
    While at the Neuroscience Center, fellows work side-by-side with residents, students and nationally renowned neuroradiology faculty educators to build upon knowledge in neuroradiology and advanced neuroimaging principles. The rotation focuses on the mastery of modern imaging technology and covers potential imaging techniques for CNS imaging in the future, including Dynamic Susceptibility Contrast (DSC) MR perfusion, Dynamic Contrast Enhanced (DCE) MR perfusion, Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL) MR perfusion, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and tractography, functional MRI, MR spectroscopy, and CT perfusion. A second year of neuroradiology fellowship focusing on advanced neuroimaging is available.
  • Neurointerventional
    The neurointerventional rotation is based at Eskenazi Hospital, where fellows work to become proficient at diagnostic brain and spine angiography, vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty, and CT-guided biopsies through the guidance of teaching neurointerventionalists. As part of this rotation, fellows become familiar with neurointerventional procedures, including aneurysm coiling, extracranial and intracranial angioplasty and stenting, AVM and dural AV fistula embolization, tumor embolization, and intraarterial therapy for acute stroke.
  • Pediatric Neuroradiology
    While on the pediatric neuroradiology rotation at Riley Hospital, fellows have a large degree of responsibility for a service that serves the largest statewide patient population with diversity of common and rare pediatric neurologic illnesses under the guidance of pediatric neuroradiologists including Chang Ho, MD, IU School of Medicine offers a one-year subsequent dedicated pediatric neuroradiology fellowship.
  • Evening Neuroradiology
    The evening neuroradiology rotation offers fellows an immersion in new diagnoses and inpatient emergencies. The rotation takes place in the afternoon and until 9pm—side-by-side with faculty neuroradiology in an exciting and fast-paced work environment.
  • Head and Neck Imaging
    During the head and neck imaging rotation, fellow work with dedicated head and neck faculty, including Dr. Kristine Mosier and covers head and neck imaging across the enterprise. Fellows learn detailed anatomy and how diagnostic imaging helps treat patients, interacting closely with clinical faculty on a range of head and neck pathology. Fellows also assist in imaging-guided head and neck biopsies. This rotation offers exposure to neuropathology, including brain cutting and radiologic-pathologic correlation. For physicians interested in gaining further expertise in this complex field, IU School of Medicine also supports a one-year head and neck imaging fellowship.

Neuroradiology IR Rotation

Training Sites and Rotations

  • five rotations in adult neuro/advanced imaging at Goodman Hall
  • two rotations in head and neck at Goodman Hall
  • two rotations in pediatric neuro at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health
  • two rotations in neuroradiology at Eskenazi Health
  • one rotation in the evening shift at Goodman Hall

Fellows in the neuroradiology program train at the following clinical care sites in Indianapolis:

  • Neuroscience Center and Goodman Hall
    Neuroscience Center: Connected to Methodist Hospital, the central Neuroradiology reading room for the IU Health system serves more than five major Indiana hospitals and several imaging centers. Methodist Hospital houses one of the two Level 1 trauma centers in Indiana as well as a Comprehensive Stroke Center. Methodist Hospital has the largest neuroscience critical care unit in the country. While at this site, fellows help to manage a busy neuroradiology service along with faculty while making critical advanced-imaging decisions under guidance of Indiana University School of Medicine’s experienced neuroradiology faculty. Fellows serve the needs of several service lines managing oncology, seizure and neurodegenerative patients at the Neuroscience Center and at IU Health University Hospital through multidisciplinary collaboration and tumor boards.
  • Eskenazi Hospital

    Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital: Fellows train at this large county hospital with a level 1 trauma center for the neurointerventional rotation and work with accomplished neurointerventionalists to become proficient at diagnostic brain and spine angiography, vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty, and CT guided biopsies.

  • Riley Hospital for Children

    Riley Hospital for Children: Fellows rotating at this top ranked, nationally recognized pediatric tertiary care center have the opportunity to learn from accomplished pediatric neuroradiologists and interact closely with expert clinicians in the care and imaging of pediatric CNS tumor imaging, genetic and metabolic disorders affecting the CNS, and the range of CNS pathology affecting the pediatric population. Physicians interested in focused training on pediatric neuroimaging can explore IU School of Medicine’s one-year pediatric neuroradiology fellowship.

Moonlighting and Benefits

Internal moonlighting in neuroradiology is voluntary and won't exceed more than two shifts/month with a total of 20 shifts annually. All studies need to be staffed out and pays at $90/hour. General moonlighting calls are voluntary, outside of neuroradiology, trainees will finalize report by themselves and pays at $250/hour. Discover more school benefits.
