Dear Fellowship Program Director:
Representatives appointed by the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery, the Cerebrovascular Section of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons/Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and the Society of Vascular and Interventional Neurology have collaborated to initiate a Fellowship Match process for training in Neurointervention. The application process will occur via the Electronic Resident Application Service (ERAS), and the Match will be administered by the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). The goal is to provide a unified approach for interested applicants to find training, as well as to streamline the application process for Fellowship Programs. The Match is open to currently accredited multi-specialty Neurointerventional Fellowship Programs.
The Match would occur in May 2026, and would apply to fellows starting in July 2027. Below are 3 documents for your review:
- Neurointerventional Fellowship Match Information, which contains important information that outline our rationale and plan for the Match;
- Neurointerventional Fellowship Match Letters of Commitment and Endorsement, which contains the MOU that would constitute each program’s agreement to commit all positions from 2027 on to the Match; and
- Neurointerventional Fellowship Match Memorandum of Understanding, which contains a few short forms with basic information about the number of positions offered for the Match, and information for the institutional ACGME DIO.
The Neurointerventional Fellowship Match Task Force hopes to seek input from each program director by reaching out to them directly and via a town hall meeting in August-September 2023.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Please contact us with any questions and comments at NIFellowshipMatch@snisonline.org.
