Differences in Neuroradiology Training Programs around the World

Differences in Neuroradiology Training Programs around the World BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: No previous study compares neuroradiology training programs and teaching schedules across the globe, to our knowledge. This study was conducted to better understand international program requisites. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data from 43 countries were collected by an e-mail-based questionnaire (response rate, 84.0%). Radiologists across the world were surveyed regarding the neuroradiology training schemes in their institutions. Answers were verified by officers of the national neuroradiology societies. RESULTS: While many countries do not provide fellowship training in neuroradiology ( n = 16), others have formal postresidency curricula ( n = 27). Many programs have few fellows and didactic sessions, but the 1- or 2-year duration of fellowship training is relatively consistent ( n = 23/27, 85%). CONCLUSIONS: There is a wide variety of fellowship offerings, lessons provided, and ratios of teachers to learners in neuroradiology training programs globally.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: No previous study compares neuroradiology training programs and teaching schedules across the globe, to our knowledge. This study was conducted to better understand international program requisites. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data from 43 countries were collected by an e-mail-based questionnaire (response rate, 84.0%). Radiologists across the world were surveyed regarding the neuroradiology training schemes in their institutions. Answers were verified by officers of the national neuroradiology societies. RESULTS: While many countries do not provide fellowship training in neuroradiology ( n = 16), others have formal postresidency curricula ( n = 27). Many programs have few fellows and didactic sessions, but the 1- or 2-year duration of fellowship training is relatively consistent ( n = 23/27, 85%). CONCLUSIONS: There is a wide variety of fellowship offerings, lessons provided, and ratios of teachers to learners in neuroradiology training programs globally.
