The University of Florida has two open positions for the 2023-24 year in our one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship program in Gainesville, FL; a second year of subspecialized training may be added for those interested in a particular focus or transition to academic practice. Our fellowship is designed to be a high-yield educational experience in diagnostic neuroradiology studies for both adults and children, preparing our graduates for a successful career in high volume private practice or academic medicine.
The UF Health Shands Hospital is a nationally recognized hospital, an academic stroke center of excellence, epilepsy center of excellence, level I trauma center, and a referral center for state of the art treatment of brain tumors and complex head and neck cancers. In addition, our children’s hospital within a hospital ranked #1 in Florida for the 2021-22 year and includes a level IV NICU. Our fellowship program is co-sponsored by the North Florida South Georgia Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center. The UF Health hospitals and the VAMC have over 1200 total inpatient beds combined on their adjacent campuses. Clinical experience at the VA also includes PET/CT in head and neck cancer, seizure, and dementia.
Daily teaching occurs at the workstation, working with 10 neuroradiology trained faculty members at UF and 5 additional fellowship-trained faculty at the VA. There are dedicated weekly fellow lectures or journal club sessions as well as a popular “Hits & Misses” conference monthly with the entire division. There are separate dedicated teaching sessions in head and neck radiology with our department chair, Dr. Mancuso. Fellows also attend and participate in multiple weekly multidisciplinary conferences. Our fellows have access to a unique online learning platform created at UF (WIDI Learn), combining guidance on structured reporting and available simulated cases.
Fellows perform image-guided procedures under fluoroscopy, ultrasound, CT, and CT fluoroscopy. Fellows also assist with acquisition and processing of advanced studies including functional MRI and DTI. The fellows take call 1 out of every 4 weekends at UF. There is no VA or overnight call. A home workstation is provided!
Fellows have a total of 3 weeks of vacation and 2 weeks of sick leave. UF also allows additional parental/medical leave available if needed. Compensation is set at a standard level for all trainees in ACGME-accredited programs across the institution based on PGY-level. Health insurance is provided. There is also a provided stipend for educational materials and/or conference attendance.

Some comments from recent alumni:
“UF Neuroradiology Fellowship was an outstanding year filled with many learning opportunities. The biggest strength is the high quality teaching faculty who are dedicated to teaching the residents and fellows and provide the highest level of patient care. The fellowship year was fairly flexible to allow the fellow to concentrate in areas of high interest.”
“Cordial environment. Great pathology. Awesome mentors.”
“High volume of complex cases. Experienced faculty in a range of sub-subspecialty areas, like H&N. High level of independence.”
“Access to large volume of didactic lectures and presentations due to being a large academic center. Exposure to a wide breadth of cases and pathologies by rotating through both Shands and VA Hospitals.”
