Vascular Neurology Fellowship

Providing Focused Training in Vascular Neurology

The Vascular Neurology Fellowship at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin is a yearlong training opportunity for physicians who desire to pursue further training in the ever expanding field of vascular neurology.  The program offers two Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-approved positions each year and applications are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service the National Resident Matching Program.

With two comprehensive stroke centers in the city of Austin, fellows have the opportunity to gain experience on a high volume of challenging and complex cases.  Fellows work in close collaboration with colleagues in neurology, neurocritical care, emergency medicine, neurosurgery and neuroendovascular Surgery. Fellows also rotate with physical medicine and rehabilitation colleagues at Dell Seton Medical Center and the Central Texas Rehabilitation Hospital to fully understand the long-term impact of disability and stroke disease on the daily lives of patients and their families.

A main feature of this fellowship is an active Stroke Code Program that focuses on the use of MRI as the preferred initial imaging modality and tenecteplase as the preferred thrombolytic agent. There is also a strong emphasis in acute stroke neuroimaging, quality improvement sessions and participation in major clinical trials and stroke research initiatives.

The one year program is designed to train compassionate and highly competent vascular neurologists who will have successful and impactful careers in any future setting they should choose.

The Vascular Neurology Fellowship is affiliated with Dell Med’s Department of Neurology.
