The Vascular Neurology Fellowship at Wake Forest University School of Medicine prepares fellows to independently practice the subspecialty of vascular neurology. After completing the program, fellows are prepared for either an academic or private practice position.  Fellows are eligible for the Vascular Neurology Boards after they successfully complete the fellowship.

Funded as a PGY-5 position, this Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-accredited fellowship is a one-year experience involving clinical care and research. Stroke fellows will be well-trained in acute evaluation and management of stroke patients and will receive significant training in the use of intravenous thrombolytics and endovascular treatments.

All fellows attend neurovascular ultrasound courses and meet eligibility criteria for the Neurosonology Certification Examination of the American Society of Neuroimaging.  Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is certified as a Primary Stroke Center by the Joint Commission. Fellows will interact with the multi-disciplinary stroke team and stroke service, with the dedicated stroke faculty.

Each applicant is required to complete or have completed a three-year neurology, child neurology or neurodevelopment disabilities residency program accredited in the U.S. or Canada. Applicants must qualify for licensure by the North Carolina Board of Medical Examiners and must be board-eligible.

Qualified applicants are required to apply through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and the National Residency Match Program (NRMP) with the required documents below. Competitive candidates who are selected to interview will be notified by email of available dates to schedule an interview.
