About the Cerebrovascular/Endovascular Neurosurgical Fellowship

A major part of the Cerebrovascular/Endovascular Neurosurgical Fellowship program will be spent performing diagnostic and therapeutic procedures under the supervision of a board-certified endovascular neurosurgeon at each of several clinical training sites.

The program director will define the level of supervision required for those procedures and provide that information to each clinical training site’s medical staff services. Each fellow will maintain responsibility for case logs, as required.

Fellow activities

The fellow will provide services that include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Performing open cerebrovascular cases (for example, AVM, aneurysms and carotids) consistent with the privileges granted by each clinical training site, and perform the full range of endovascular procedures.
  • Delivering lectures to medical residents on neurosurgery. The timing, content, number and duration of such lectures will be determined by the program director.
  • Conducting and completing a minimum of one substantial research project to be submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal in cooperation with the program director.
  • Working with physicians who refer their patients to each clinical training site in order to collect information about the patient prior to seeing their patients.
  • Collaborating with the program director and other faculty of the medical teaching service at each clinical training site to conduct additional research.
  • Agreeing to be bound by each clinical training site’s current medical staff by-laws and written rules and regulations.

Participation by the fellow in this program will at all times be subject to, and conditioned upon, the fellow’s continued appointment to the active medical staffs and maintenance of unrestricted medical staff privileges at each clinical training site.

Rotation locations

This fellowship program provides training in cerebrovascular/endovascular diseases at several healthcare system locations in Philadelphia and its suburbs, and New Jersey.
