Then consider applying for Geisinger’s Neuroendovascular Surgery Fellowship — one of just 35 approved fellowship programs in this exciting, evolving field of medicine.
Neuroendovascular (NES) surgery is a subspecialty that uses minimally invasive catheter-based technology, radiological imaging and human clinical expertise to diagnose and treat vascular diseases of the central nervous system and other disorders of the head, neck and spine and their vascular supply.
As our neuroendovascular surgery fellow, you’ll gain the unique training and skills needed to succeed in this challenging subspecialty.
You can take the educational program in neuroendovascular surgery during the neurosurgical residency. Or complete your training after satisfactory completion/validation of catheter-based skills and competency, as well as all other prerequisites for each individual specialty. This prerequisite training may include:
- An ACGME-recognized neurosurgical residency
- An ACGME-recognized neurology residency followed by a stroke or critical care fellowship
- An ACGME-recognized radiology residency followed by a neuroradiology fellowship, during which you spent at least six months of focused clinical service in a neurosurgery, vascular neurology or neuro-intensive care program.
Our fellowship training structure follows the criteria set forth by the Committee on Advanced Subspecialty Training (CAST).
