Boston Medical Center Department of Radiology is accepting applications for an immediate fellowship position in the Section of Neuroradiology. Work with an internationally recognized faculty consisting of 10 neuroradiologists, 2 neuro-interventionalists, 40 residents and 4 PhDs. We offer a well-rounded neuroradiology experience including the spectrum of conventional and advanced imaging in Brain, Spine, Head and Neck, Pediatric neuroradiology and interventional procedures. There is a structured blended-curriculum highlighting important clinical and non-clinical topics. In addition to call responsibilities, weekly academic time is provided for scholarly projects. Ample opportunity to teach trainees and be involved in region and national conferences. Numerous collegial interdepartmental conferences in a supportive and positive work environment. State-of-the-art equipment. Excellent benefits.

The fellowship could also serve as a year towards the alternate pathway.

Boston University School of Medicine Center for Translation Neurotrauma Imaging (CTNI) is an international leader in translational research for brain injury and Alzheimer’s disease. The fellowship offers opportunities to work with world leaders in acute and chronic neurotrauma and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

Boston Medical Center (BMC) is a private, not-for-profit, 514-bed, academic medical center located in Boston's historic South End. The primary teaching affiliate for Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM), BMC is the largest safety net hospital and busiest trauma and emergency services center in New England. BMC is unwavering in its commitment to the community with 57% of patients from under-served populations.

Boston University Medical Campus has a rich history dating back to 1848, when it began as the New England Female Medical College, the first institution in the United States to offer medical education to women and the first to graduate a black female physician. In 1873, the medical college merged with Boston University, becoming the first coeducational medical school in the nation. BUSM alumni include the first black female physician and the first Native American physician. Recruiting and retaining a heterogeneous student body and faculty are a priority. We firmly believe in diversity of culture, race, and gender—and also ideas, solutions, and perspectives as critical components of achieving excellence at BUSM.

If you are interested in applying for our neuroradiology fellowship, please submit an application along with three letters of recommendation, personal statement, current CV and USMLE scores.

1 Year Research Fellowship Position Opportunity for Physicians-in-Training, Junior Staff, or PhD Candidate:

Who are we?

The University of Calgary’s Department of Clinical Neurosciences proves highest clinical and scientific expertise in stroke treatment (around 1600 stroke admissions per year). We are passionate about stroke research and translating this into clinical practice.

Having conducted several multicentric trials on ischemic stroke treatment (ESCAPE, SWIFT-PRIME, INTERRSECT), as well as a meta-analysis summarizing the five major positive IATstroke trials (HERMES), the department has played a leading role in the field of stroke treatment and neurointerventional research. TheDepartment of Clinical Neurosciences is currently conducting additional multicentric international randomized controlled trials such as ESCAPE-NA1 and TEMPOII.

What is the research fellowship about?

Your research will focus on the validation of imaging tools for the use in acute ischemic stroke, with a special focuson multiphase CT angiography (mCTA), an innovative and robust imaging method that has been developed here in the Calgary Stroke Program. Your projects will focus on automatization and machine learning based image interpretation systems for acute ischemic stroke detection and therapy. You will also be involved in the development of new imaging tools to diagnose acute ischemic stroke.
