Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology Fellowship (Florida)
Mayo Clinic offers a premier one- to two-year fellowship in Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology. This program is one of a few of its kind in the country and offers the opportunity to specialize in the growing area of Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology. Trainees receive broad exposure to state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment of cerebrovascular disease in a multidisciplinary environment.
Mayo Clinic has established a large national and international referral base for complex cerebrovascular disease (e.g., aneurysms, AVMs, AVFs, cavernomas, acute stroke, ischemic cerebrovascular problems, etc.) In addition, it has developed one of the country's busiest multidisciplinary cerebrovascular surgery practices, managing patients in a fully integrated way, using all modern tools from microsurgery.
The goals of this training program are:
- Demonstrate a commitment to carrying out professional responsibilities, adherence to ethical principles and sensitivity to a diverse patient population
- Develop a program of regular reading of the neurosurgical medical literature in general and of the neurovascular surgery literature (e.g., neurosurgery, neuroscience, neurology, neuroradiology)
- Develop publishing in general and of the neurovascular surgery literature
- Develop clinical competence in the evaluation, diagnostic work-up, and therapy of vascular diseases of the nervous system. Trainees will be in charge of daily work rounds, as well as supervision and teaching of residents. Cerebrovascular conditions trainees will see and treat include:
- Brain aneurysms
- Occlusive cerebrovascular disease
- Moya Moya disease
- Acute Stroke Intervention
Following completion of this training program, you will be trained in all aspects of cerebrovascular disease treatment.
The Endovascular Surgical Neuroradiology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Florida was established in 2009 and since that time, two fellows have completed their training in this program. Going forward, it is anticipated that one fellow will complete this program annually.
