The Diagnostic Neuroradiology Fellowship Program at the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics currently has one opening for training beginning July 1st, 2019.
UI Hospitals & Clinics is a beautiful, state-of-the-art, 734- bed tertiary care center located in the "Big 10" community of Iowa City, Iowa. It is closely allied with a 200-bed Veterans Affairs Hospital on the same campus. Both hospitals serve as major referral centers for the Midwest. The Department of Radiology at UI Hospitals & Clinics consists of 60 staff physicians and researchers, 14 fellows, and 34 residents. There are currently 10 faculty members in the Section of Neuroradiology, including three physicists.
Our areas of expertise and research cover all aspects of our subspecialty including 3D-MDCT, DTI/tractography, DWI/ADC, and spectroscopy. A review of our faculty CVs will attest to our high visibility at various national meetings (ASNR, ASHNR, ASSR, RSNA, ARRS, ISMRM) and our publication activity.
We currently offer four, one-year, ACGME-accredited fellowships in Neuroradiology.
Last year approximately 322,000 examinations were performed at UIHC, of which 37,925 were neuroradiology examinations.
The one-year fellowship offers experience in all areas of diagnostic neuroradiology: Plain radiographs, CT, CTA, MR (including DWI, DTI, spectroscopy, CSF flow studies), MRA, CT/MR perfusion studies, myelography, catheter angiography, and percutaneous diagnostic procedures (ESI, facet injection, biopsies, sialography, etc). We have a fully integrated voice-recognition/PACS system enabling our referring clinicians to view studies on their own computers via the Hospital Information System. Our reading rooms, located in our MR center, are also equipped with Vitrea (2) and e-film workstations.
We collaborate extensively with our Nuclear Medicine colleagues, often jointly interpreting the contrast-enhanced PET/CT head and neck studies. We currently have two PET/CT scanners.
Fellows have combined office space in the MR center with 6 cubicles, separate computers, and an up-to-date "fellow library" of books. (There is also a small refrigerator and microwave in the office!) Call is one week in four. There is no in-house call but fellows read in-house with staff on weekends, generally from 8AM-noon, Saturdays and Sundays. Fellows receive one academic day each week (dependent upon staffing needs) and are expected to participate in a research project. Fellows are encouraged to prepare material for presentation at a national meeting. Fellows will be expected to assist in teaching of medical students and residents rotating on the Neuroradiology Service and to attend weekly conferences:
Journal Club (monthly)
Noon-Morbidity and Mortality Conference (monthly)
7:00a-Resident/Fellows Case Conference (weekly)
Noon-Fellows physics lectures (3/month) provided by our physicists
5:00p-Neurosurgery Conference (weekly)
Noon-Fellows Case Conference (weekly)
5:00p-Neuroophthalmolgy Conference (monthly)
7:00a-ENT Multidisciplinary Tumor Board (weekly)
Noon-Neuroradiology Section Meeting (monthly or PRN)
1:15p-Pediatric Neuroradiology Case Review (weekly)
We are very fortunate to work and be associated with many nationally ranked departments and many outstanding referring physicians in Otolaryngology, Ophthalmology, Neurosurgery, and Neurology named to the list of Best Doctors®. Enjoy the cultural offerings of a major university community, the excitement of "Hawkeye" athletics, low crime, an outstanding public school system, and excellent housing opportunities, many within 5 minutes of the medical center.
