A Mayo Clinic neuroradiology fellow reviews patient imaging
Page Content


The Neuroradiology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, covers all of the disciplines of neuroradiology in both adult and pediatric patients, including head (intracranial), ENT/head and neck (extracranial), neurovascular, and spine.

Through this one-year program, you receive training in all aspects of neuroradiology imaging, including radiography, myelography, angiography, CT, MRI, fMRI, MRS, positron emission tomography (PET), and interventional neuroradiology. The state-of-the-art equipment includes 7T MRI and PET-MRI scanners.

As a fellow, you’ll have access to:

  • Experience in a neuroradiology division that reviews over 50,000 neuro MRI exams and 45,000 neuro CT exams each year, in addition to conducting over 6,000 image-guided procedures annually
  • Premier referring services, including neurology & neurosurgery, orthopedics, ENT, cancer, and geriatrics programs all ranked among the top 10 in the nation in adult specialty rankings (U.S. News and World Report 2020-2021)
  • Extensive one-on-one learning, with case-by-case feedback from one of 46 supervising staff neuroradiologists specifically working with you

The fellowship takes place in a high-volume academic environment and prepares you for private practice or an academic career in neuroradiology.


The Neuroradiology Fellowship is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.


You will be eligible to take the initial certification neuroradiology subspecialty examination upon completion of the fellowship and one year of practice or additional training (with at least one-third of that year spent in neuroradiology) as required by the American Board of Radiology.

Program history

The Neuroradiology Fellowship began in 1973. Since that time, more than 100 physicians have completed training. It is anticipated that beginning in the 2020-2021 academic year, six fellows will complete training in this program annually.
