About Ohio State’s Diagnostic Neuroradiology Fellowship

The mission of our program is to provide excellent subspecialty training in all facets of clinical neuroradiology through progressive clinical exposure and high quality teaching in a supportive atmosphere.

The Neuroradiology Fellowship is a one-year ACGME-accredited position with an option for a second year, which is not accredited. The position begins in July and ends in June, coinciding with the academic year. The second year is for those interested in an academic career or additional training in oncologic neuroradiology.

The program aims of the Neuroradiology fellowship:

  1. To educate Neuroradiology fellows to practice autonomously in academic or private settings.
  2. To provide quality feedback to fellows using faculty, peer, and patient evaluations on a quarterly basis under direct mentorship from our Fellowship Director and other Neuroradiology Division faculty. This feedback will include measurable goals for the fellows and a series of evidence-based didactic lectures intended to help the program and fellows grow.
  3. To engage fellows in Neuroradiology Division research initiatives intended to further the field of Neuroradiology.
  4. To expose fellows to the entire breadth of adult and pediatric neuroradiology in emergency, inpatient and outpatient care settings, including advanced imaging techniques, head and neck imaging, and image guided procedures.
  5. To work with the Department of Radiology, Neuroradiology Division faculty, and fellows to improve the Neuroradiology fellowship using continuous feedback from all stakeholders

Program Basics

  • 12-month ACGME-accredited neuroradiology fellowship program
  • Opportunity to work with 14 fellowship-trained neuroradiologists from various backgrounds and areas of expertise, including head and neck and advanced imaging
  • Will gain familiarity with appropriate clinical application of  neuroimaging techniques and modalities including computed tomography, MR imaging, conventional radiography and nuclear medicine
  • Comprehensive exposure to a variety of imaging pathology within the brain, spine and head and neck, including neuro-oncological imaging from the James Cancer Hospital, the largest cancer hospital in the Midwest and third largest cancer hospital in the nation
  • Hands-on experience performing various interventional procedures including lumbar punctures, myelography, image-guided biopsies and drainage procedures, interventional pain management procedures and vertebroplasties
  • Exposure to additional neurointerventional vascular procedures


  • Multiple teaching conferences (including dedicated fellow didactic conferences, neuroradiology case conferences and jounal club/research discussions) and neuropathology or other interdisciplinary clinical conferences are held regularly to enhance the educational experience of the fellow

Research Opportunities

  • Access to various research and other scholarly activity opportunities among multiple active research, educational and quality improvement projects currently being conducted by neuroradiology faculty
  • The Neuroradiology fellow has the option to advance his or her knowledge in the field of medical imaging informatics and participate in innovative research in artificial intelligence as part of his or her elective and/or research projects. This is available through a collaboration with the AI2 Lab (Laboratory for Augmented Intelligence in Imaging). The Ohio State University AI2 Lab is one of the few laboratories in the country dedicated to leverage machine learning and advanced computer systems to improve patient care and imaging diagnosis. Neuroradiology fellows interested in this pathway will interact directly with one of our Neuroradiology attendings, Dr. Luciano M. Prevedello, MD, MPH, Vice Chair of Medical Imaging Informatics & Augmented Intelligence in Medical Imaging and Director of the 3D and Advanced Visualization Lab
  • By the end of the fellowship, candidates will become comfortable interpreting routine and complex neuroradiology cases in either a private practice or academic career setting

Application Process

Applications for the 2025-2026 academic year will only be accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service ERAS. Fellowship application submission through ERAS will begin in late November, with applications becoming available for programs to review on December 6, 2023.

The Neuroradiology program will continue to participate in the National Residency Matching Program NRMP. The Neuroradiology Fellowship application and interview timeline is the following:

  • December 6, 2023: Programs may start reviewing applications on ERAS
  • January 8, 2024: ERAS applications reviewed & interviews begin
  • March 31, 2024: Virtual interviews completed
  • June 14, 2024: Match Day
  • July 1, 2025: Neuroradiology fellowship begins

Applicants must have completed an ACGME or equivalent accredited diagnostic radiology residency for eligibility and must register for the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). The program number for neuroradiology is 1566423F0.

Please note: Applicants must also be able to obtain a full and unrestricted Ohio medical license prior to their start date.

Ohio State Radiology supports the ABR International Medical Graduate Alternate Pathway.
