The UCLA Division of Interventional Neuroradiology (INR) accepts candidates for our INR fellowship training from Radiology, Neurology and Neurosurgery backgrounds. Our fellowship is a 2-year training program certified by CAST (Committee on Advanced Subspecialty Training) in NeuroEndovascular surgery.
Our fellowship tracks are as follows:
Completion of Radiology Residency and Diagnostic Neuroradiology Fellowship is required. The Diagnostic Neuroradiology fellowship can be done at UCLA or elsewhere. The application for the UCLA Diagnostic Neuroradiology Fellowship is separate from the INR application.
Completion of Neurology residency and Stroke/Vascular Neurology or NeuroCritical Care Fellowship is required. The Stroke/Vascular Neurology or NeuroCritical Care Fellowship can be done at UCLA or elsewhere. The application for the UCLA Stroke/Vascular Neurology and NeuroCritical Care Fellowships are separate from the INR application (http://www.neurology.ucla.edu).
Completion of Neurosurgery residency is required.
If also accepted for an interview for UCLA Diagnostic Neuroradiology or UCLA Stroke/Vascular Neurology or UCLA NeuroCritical Care fellowships, they can be arranged to be done in the same visit (but expect to stay for two days), schedule permitting.
Timing of Application
Since we do interview for positions up to 3 years before the start of the actual Neurointerventional fellowship, applicants are encouraged to apply early if their intention is to receive preliminary training elsewhere (Neurologists and Radiologist), or if coming from a Neurosurgical program.
Please note, the Interventional Neuroradiology fellowship is not an ACGME accredited program, so the UCLA GME office will only allow us to train US Citizens or Green Card Holders.
