Curriculum

Neuroradiology Fellowship

As a member of the department of radiology at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville, each fellow spends all of his or her time assigned to the neuroradiology imaging and interventional services within the neuroradiology reading room, located on second floor of the Clinical Center at UF Health Jacksonville. Responsibilities include interpretation of all diagnostic imaging studies, including MRI, MRA, CT, CTA and X-ray.

Goals and Objectives

The neuroradiology fellowship program has integrated our goals and objectives within the six competencies established by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, or ACGME: patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvements, professionalism and system-based practice. Clinical responsibilities include protocolling, monitoring and interpreting CT and MRI studies under faculty supervision, preparing interdisciplinary conferences and consulting with referring physicians.

Research

Active participation in research is highly encouraged. Fellows have the opportunity to participate in ongoing research projects while initiating their own scholarly ideas. In-depth guidance and counseling are provided by faculty well-versed in the area of research. Training spans the spectrum — from constructing study protocols and enrolling patients, to gathering and analyzing data and also writing abstracts and manuscripts.

The University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville encourages resident and fellow research through the availability of Dean's Fund Research Awards and an annual Research Day, where residents and fellows from all disciplines present their work. Well-designed studies conducted in collaboration with the faculty have resulted in residents and fellows presenting their research at regional, national and international meetings.
