Interventional Neurology Fellowship

The MSU Department of Neurology in collaboration with Sparrow Hospital offers a two-year comprehensive fellowship training in field of interventional neurology/neurointerventional surgery where the fellow will be perfecting endovascular techniques to manage a variety of vascular neurology disorders.  This fellowship provides extensive experience in management of acute stroke patients, stroke research, and outpatient stroke care.  We care for more than 800 stroke admissions and 450 interventional procedures annually.  We have a broad variety of cases including hemorrhagic and ischemic strokes, spinal and head and neck pathologies.


This is a full 24-month fellowship during which fellows are trained in the cognitive and technical skill requirements of all aspects of neurointerventions including:

·       The performance and interpretation of diagnostic cerebral and spinal angiography.

·    Interventional management of cerebrovascular disorders including : intra-arterial thrombolysis, mechanical thrombectomy, extracranial and intracranial stenting, aneurysm embolization, AVM embolization, dural AV fistula treatments, pre-epilepsy surgery WADA testing, cerebral venography, epistaxis embolization, cerebral and head and neck tumor angiograms and presurgical tumor embolization.

We currently have two interventional faculty members, Dr. Anmar Razak, neurology interventionalist, and Dr. Omar Qahwash, neurosurgery interventionalist.  This partnership allows our fellows to learn two different perspectives during their training.  We allow our IN fellow to spend one of their two years of training as the only fellow. 

Board Eligible/Board Certified stroke neurologists may apply for fellowship.
