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 (UCNS). Our program offers comprehensive training in adult neuroimaging with emphasis on advanced imaging of neurogenerative diseases. The rotations start with neuroimaging basics or “bootcamp” to learn about basic imaging physics, radiologic neuroanatomy, and reporting neuroimaging findings (i.e. report dictation). Rotations are flexible, but a typical rotations schedule is listed below.
