Endovascular Neurosurgery and Neurointerventional Surgery Fellowship

The Neurosurgery, Neuroradiology, and Neurology Departments collaboratively offer a CAST (Committee on Advanced Subspecialty Training) certified fellowship program by the American Board of Neurological Surgery in Neurointerventional Surgery / Endovascular Neurosurgery. The duration of the fellowship is two years and one applicant is accepted yearly. We accept Neurology, Neuroradiology, and Neurosurgery applicants.  Our program features senior faculty from all three specialties who are also involved in world-renowned clinical research and developing major policies.

Neurointerventional Surgery, Endovascular Neurosurgery, Interventional Neurology, and Neurointerventional Radiology are all name designations that are used for the fellowship at Cooper University Hospital, Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. We have a whole breadth of faculties in all levels of training throughout the three departments.
