The endovascular neurosurgery fellowship is a training program offering broad experience in all aspects of endovascular neurosurgery. We offer either a one or two-year program, based on the applicant’s prior experience. The fellowship is accredited by the Society of Neurological Surgeons Committee on Advanced Subspecialty Training, or CAST. Fellowship director, Webster Crowley, MD, has subspecialty CAST certification in Neuroendovascular surgery.
In the first year, you’ll rotate six months each with key faculty, learn basic angiographic and endovascular patient management skills, and participate in endovascular research. You will also provide operative and non-operative patient care in a busy Rush University Medical Center outpatient clinic. Second-year fellows round daily with the team and participate in surgical management and post-operative care for an array of cerebrovascular disorders.
