Rotations & Didactic Lectures
The neuroimaging fellow needs to dedicate 12 months to neuroimaging in order to be certified by the United Council of Neurological Subspecialties. However, these 12 months need not be continuous. Some flexible arrangements include:
- Combining neuroimaging training with training in other subspecialties of neurology, such as stroke, movement or inflammation disorders or cognitive neurology. At Houston Methodist, we have vascular neurology (AUPN-certified), cognitive neurology and neuromuscular fellowships.
- Completing the fellowship on a part-time basis, with a flexible daily schedule. The fellow will need to complete the time equivalent to a one full-time year of training.
