Neuroradiology Fellowship Program

Neurordiology Fellowship Banner

Overview

The Neuroradiology Fellowship with the Medical College of Wisconsin Affiliated Hospitals (MCWAH) is a one-year, ACGME-accredited program that offers comprehensive training in the translation of advanced neuroimaging techniques to the everyday practice of neuroradiology.

  • Exceptional Clinical Application Exposure - This program is highly respected as one of the country’s leaders in the clinical application of:
    • fMRI
    • DTI
    • MR perfusion
    • Radial diffusivity
    • ASL
    • Segmental brain volume analysis
    • Simultaneous integration of the techniques for regional and whole brain analysis
  • Cutting Edge Technologies - Fellows have access to commercial and proprietary cutting edge technologies from close ties to industry leaders and in-house biomedical research.
     
  • Experienced Faculty Dedicated to Teaching
     
  • Diverse Clinical Pathology – Technology and training combined with the diverse clinical pathology of a major metropolitan area prepares fellows to function at the forefront of any academic or private practice environment.

Carefully Designed Fellowship with a Formal Educational Structure

  • Elevated Experience – Emphasis on a deeper level of understanding of neuroradiology that exceeds the residency experience and what can be gleamed from mere quantitative case exposure.
  • Active Learning Methods - The department is proactive in faculty development of modern educational techniques.
     
  • Bi-weekly Lecture Series Dedicated to Fellows - Topics include:
    • Advanced imaging
    • Basic neuroscience and targeted neuroradiologic lectures that explore brain structure and function
    • Brain cutting sessions with the neuropathologist
    • Unique dedicated neuroradiologic M&M conferences that explore the sources and reasons for errors.
  • Neuroradiologic Teaching File - Fellows are contributors to a teaching file database promoting activing learning and providing an extensive learning resource.
     
  • Interdepartmental Conferences – Fellows are encouraged to attend the many interdepartmental conferences that focus on brain tumors, epilepsy, and head and neck pathology, including a CPC (clinicopathologic conference), and neurology grand rounds.

Program Leadership

  • Three individuals guide the neuroradiology fellowship.
    • The director, Andrew Klein MD, coordinates this comprehensive and rigorous educational fellowship training
    • John Ulmer MD, associate fellowship director and former president of the American Society of Functional Neuroradiology, leads the advanced neuroimaging training
    • Leighton Mark MD, also associate fellowship director and Image Asset Coordinator for Neuroradiology for the American Board of Radiology, emphasizes the basic neuroscience and neuroanatomic elements of the fellowship
  • Eight additional neuroradiologists contribute to fellowship training.
    • Vince Mathews MD, department chair and board of trustee member of the American Board of Radiology
    • Scott Rand MD PhD, emphasis on brain tumor physiology and biomarkers
    • Douglas Brown MD, emphasis on PET
    • Stephen Quinet MD, emphasis on vessel wall imaging
    • Michelle Michel MD, past president of the American Society of Head and Neck Radiology
    • James Strottmann MD, emphasis on CT perfusion
    • Sonia Gill MD, emphasis on head and neck imaging
    • Darren O'Neill MD, emphasis on MRI

Past Fellow Survey Results

A recent poll of past fellows indicated

  • A consistently high degree of satisfaction with their neuroradiology fellowship experience at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
  • They uniformly felt well prepared for whatever practice environment they encountered post training.
  • Appreciation and gratitude for the unique and stimulating MCW neuroradiology learning environment that would be hard to replicate or find elsewhere.

Awards & Recognition

  • The Department of Radiology was designated a “Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence” by the American College of Radiology. This was the first such award in the Midwest and one of eight initial awards.
  • Froedtert is consistently voted one of the best places to work in Wisconsin, year-in and year-out.
  • Our department is a friendly, stable department, with little turnover at both the professional and staff level.
