Interventional Neuroradiology Fellowship

NYU Grossman School of Medicine offers a two-year, Committee on Advanced Subspecialty Training (CAST)–accredited fellowship in interventional neuroradiology in the Department of Radiology.

As an interventional neuroradiology fellow, physicians who are board-eligible or board-certified in radiology, neurology, and neurosurgery receive specialized training in the performance and interpretation of neuroangiographic and neurointerventional procedures for adults and children.

The fellowship is overseen by Maksim Shapiro, MD, program director. For more information, contact Nati A. Mejias, program coordinator, at

Interventional Neuroradiology Training Experience

Fellows develop expertise in neurointerventional techniques to treat cerebral aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and ischemic stroke and vascular malformations and tumors of the head and neck, as well as to treat spinal tumors and vascular malformations. You also learn how to perform vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty and receive specialized training in diagnostic neuroangiographic procedures, including balloon test occlusion and selective and superselective Wada testing.

First Year

During your first fellowship year, you gain experience in clinical neurology and neurologic examination techniques for the comprehensive diagnosis and management of neurovascular conditions. Your training takes place at NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital, including the neurosurgical intensive care unit, Kimmel Pavilion, NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Center East 38th Street, Perlmutter Cancer Center, NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, and NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue.

You perform and interpret diagnostic neuroangiographic procedures and assist with neurointerventional procedures with guidance and supervision from our world-class faculty. Fellows are active in the daily work of our clinical service, take part in teaching rounds for medical students and fellows, and participate in weekly multidisciplinary cerebrovascular conferences.

Second Year

In your second fellowship year, you take on additional responsibilities in the performance of diagnostic and interventional neuroangiographic procedures and in the management of patients with neurovascular conditions in inpatient settings.

At the completion of the program, fellows are expected to exceed the Society of Neurointerventional Surgery (SNIS) membership criteria and are eligible for membership in the American Society of Neuroradiology and the Society of Neurointerventional Surgery, as well as in the World Federation of Interventional and Therapeutic Neuroradiology.

Interventional Neuroradiology Research Opportunities

Our fellows are encouraged to participate in Department of Radiology research, present interventional neuroradiology research at scientific meetings, and publish in leading neuroradiology, neurology, and neuroscience journals.

Our division has been a worldwide leader in the development of novel endovascular treatments for cerebral aneurysms for the past decade. We offer many opportunities for fellows to become involved in our efforts.

Ongoing projects include research on the pathophysiology and three-dimensional angioarchitecture of cerebral arteriovenous malformations, specifically using selective microangiography to guide endovascular and Gamma Knife® therapies. We are also developing animal models to emulate sidewall and bifurcation aneurysms within the cerebral circulation.
