About Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology/ Washington University School of Medicine
The Neuroradiology Fellowship at Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology (MIR) is a comprehensive training program designed to prepare fellows to enter either academic or private practice. Under the supervision of subspecialty-trained neuroradiology faculty, fellows gain expertise in all aspects of adult and pediatric clinical neuroradiology, including brain, spine, head/neck and neurovascular imaging. There is ample opportunity to gain experience in spinal and angiographic procedures and the neuroradiology section has a strong background in incorporating new technologies into clinical care. Fellows learn about emerging research and translational imaging techniques from leaders in their fields, including resting-state fMRI, diffusion tensor imaging, dementia imaging, and vessel wall imaging. Fellows investigate an aspect of neuroradiology through mentored scholarly projects chosen from neuroradiology education, clinical research or basic science research. Principles of physician wellness are promoted by fostering a collegial work environment, providing academic time to pursue scholarly interests and creating a schedule that balances clinical work with personal time off.

Both hospitals are large, nationally-recognized tertiary care hospital with excellent clinical programs in neurology, neurosurgery, oncology, otolaryngology, ophthalmology and orthopedic surgery. Fellows rotate to a community teaching hospital, Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital, for additional experience in head and neck imaging as well as community radiology.
