Opportunities to Teach

Fellows are encouraged to teach radiology residents at the workstation and are responsible for presenting lectures to residents and medical students. Each fellow leads one journal club discussion during the academic year. Our fellows actively participate in seven interdepartmental conferences on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis.


The MUSC Neuroradiology Fellowship Program seeks to recruit excellent fellows and provide support and guidance so that individuals can have stimulated and productive careers. All fellows choose a faculty mentor upon start of their fellowship. Each fellow confers with their faculty mentor quarterly to monitor fellow progress and ensure professional/academic growth based on criteria set forth by the ACGME. Fellows are evaluated on knowledge base, work effort, clinical performance, procedural skills, professional behavior, interpersonal relationships, teaching effort, and research activity. The Program Director meets with each fellow semiannually to review the progress of the fellow and the effectiveness of the mentee-mentor relationship and to ensure that areas of concentration facilitate the mentee’s successful career development. In addition, fellows are asked to evaluate the training program, as well as the individual faculty.

Fellow Schedule

The neuroradiology fellow works five days a week with an average of 8 to 10 hours a day. The fellow is on call one weekend out of four, on average working 8 hours on Saturday and slightly less on Sunday. There is no in-house weekday call for the fellows. Fellows are on call from home for emergent image guided procedures such as lumbar punctures and myelograms. The on-call fellow may also occasionally receive a page from patients regarding their procedures. All weekend call is with full faculty supervision during the entire year.
