Interventional Neurology Fellowship

The MSU Department of Neurology in collaboration with Sparrow Hospital offers a UCNS-accredited two-year comprehensive fellowship training in field of interventional neurology/neurointerventional surgery where fellows will acquire extensive training and gain proficiency in knowledge, skills, and techniques required to manage a variety of cerebrovascular and spinal disorders. We care for more than 800 stroke admissions and perform around 450 neuro-interventional procedures annually covering a broad variety of case 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: 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.  

Our interventional faculty members are Dr. Anmar Razak, neurology interventionalist, and Dr. Omar Qahwash, neurosurgery interventionalist complemented by teams of vascular neurologists, general neurosurgeons, and neuro-intensivists

The fellowship is open to applicants from neurology, neurosurgery, and radiology backgrounds. We accept one fellow per year of training.
