The section of Neuroradiology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) and the University of Pittsburgh Alzheimer Disease Research Center (ADRC) have an opening for a one-year non-ACGME Fellowship to begin July 1, 2019. The program is being offered to physicians who have completed an ACGME accredited neuroradiology fellowship. Applicants must be able to obtain a full and unrestricted license in the State of Pennsylvania prior to starting the fellowship.
The mission of the fellowship is to provide a pathway for interested applicants to gain experience to pursue an academic career with a focus area within neuroradiology. Fellows will focus on imaging of dementias including advanced diagnostic neuroradiology techniques and develop requisite skills to perform dementia research.
This Fellowship program will constitute a continuation of training from the applicant's previous ACGME accredited first-year neuroradiology fellowship, and will provide 1) more intense focus in neurodegenerative conditions and the characteristic neuroradiological biomarkers of these diseases; 2) mentorship to develop evidence-based methods for translating research findings related to the neurobiology of dementias into clinically useful tools to aid the Neuroradiologist in diagnosis; and 3) negotiable junior faculty attending responsibilities.
UPMC is a $16 billion global health enterprise with 80,000 employees headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA, including 4,000 physicians, more than 30 academic, community, and specialty hospitals, more than 600 doctors' offices and outpatient sites, a health insurance services division, and international and commercial services. The Department of Radiology at UPMC is one of the largest academic radiology programs in the country. The hospital system has been repeatedly named to the US News and World Report's Honor Roll, and is a leading center for otolaryngology, neurosurgery, endoscopic skull base surgery, trauma services, and neuro-oncology. The Neuroradiology Division is composed of 13 fellowship-trained CAQ-certified faculty who interpret neuroradiology examinations from our 3 core academic hospitals and interpret or consult on difficult neuroradiology cases throughout the UPMC health system.
The Alzheimer Disease Research Center (ADRC) at the University of Pittsburgh was established in 1985 by a grant from the National Institute on Aging (NIA), as a mechanism for integrating, coordinating and supporting research in Alzheimer's disease and aging. The ADRC performs and coordinates AD-related clinical and research activities and is a core source of support (e.g., resources, patients, tissue, expert consultation for research, clinical and training activities) regionally and nationally. Current research foci emphasize neuropsychiatry and neuropsychology, molecular genetics and epidemiology, basic neuroscience, and structural and functional imaging that aid in the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer's disease. The ADRC is one of the nation's leading research centers specializing in the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. Through outpatient evaluations, participants and their families receive state-of-the-art diagnostic assessments and contribute to the scientific study of Alzheimer's disease.
