Overview

Information about the Vascular Neurology Fellowship program

The Department of Neurology offers a one-year vascular neurology fellowship approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). This comprehensive program provides training in the inpatient and outpatient management of cerebrovascular disorders under the supervision of internationally renowned faculty.  

Fellows can choose between two tracks:  

  • The academic track is located primarily within the VCU Medical Center in downtown Richmond, Virginia. Fellows receive training in a comprehensive stroke center that sees an average of 1,000 stroke patients each year, with one of the highest rates and fastest times of intravenous tissue-type plasminogen activator (IV tPA) administration and stroke intervention.   
  • The community track offers training in collaboration with Winchester Medical Center in Winchester, Virginia. This provides the opportunity to train in community stroke, neuroimaging and endovascular surgical neuroradiology.  

Strengths of the program include extensive training in stroke neuroimaging, neurocritical care, acute stroke evaluation, assessment for stroke intervention and outpatient stroke prevention. Fellows also have the opportunity to participate in clinical research and ongoing clinical trials.   

Completion of the vascular neurology fellowship prepares the candidate for an academic career, and courses in research methodology can be incorporated into the curriculum for those interested.
