Director’s Letter  

Welcome to the Neuroradiology fellowship at Rochester General Hospital! The Neuroradiology faculty in the Department of Diagnostic Imaging are excited to offer this one-year fellowship. Since the completion of my Neuroradiology fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic 13 years ago, there have been many exciting changes within neuroradiology and a growing demand to train more competent neuroradiologists.  The rapid growth of acute stroke treatment has placed a greater emphasis on collaboration between clinicians and the neuroradiologist.   

The Rochester Regional Health System has had recent rapid expansion and as such affords the neuroradiology fellow a rich case base, unique opportunities and the ability to work closely with many neuroscience practitioners.

Thank you again for taking the time to consider our fellowship program and Neuroradiology as the next part of your exciting career. We look forward to hearing from you soon, in the meantime, please read more or contact us to learn more about our program.

We look forward to meeting you,

Bryan Scott, MD
Program Director
