Neuroimaging Fellowship

Welcome to the Houston Methodist Neuroimaging Fellowship. 

The Neuroimaging Fellowship was accredited by the United Council for Neurological Subspecialties in 2015. Our graduating fellows passed the credentialing exam on the first try and with top performance. As neurologists skilled in Neuroimaging, they have many professional opportunities

Neuroimaging integrates the information obtained from imaging studies with the rest of the data available from each patient. This approach is critical for the appropriate choice of imaging study.

Likewise, integration of the imaging study with the clinical outcome is critical for feedback to the fellow on image interpretation and therefore learning.


The fellowship requires 12 months dedicated to neuroimaging but there is flexibility in structuring this time. To acquire a well-rounded experience, the fellow rotates through general neurology and subspecialty services. The fellowship includes clinical and, for fellows with research interest, research components as well.
