Inquiring Applicants

Overview


All individuals seeking to apply to the Neuroradiology Fellowship Program in the Department of Radiology with the College of Medicine at the University of Florida must have satisfactorily completed a diagnostic radiology residency program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC), or other training judged suitable by the program coordinator.


Program History and Unique Opportunities

The fellowship program has been in existence for nearly 30 years. ACGME accreditation was first awarded in 1991.


Clinical and Research Collaborations

At both UF and the VA, the faculty and fellows participate in weekly multidisciplinary conferences in collaboration with oncology, neurology, surgery, radiation oncology, and pathology colleagues as well as speech and dietetics.

We also collaborate with our clinical colleagues on many research projects, both longitudinal prospective studies and retrospective reviews. In addition, UF has one of only a handful of Diagnostic Radiology Physics residency programs, and our radiology and physics faculty and staff often collaborate on research as well.
