Open Vascular and Endovascular Fellowship

24-Month Program
One of the highest volume programs in the United States

The Semmes-Murphey Clinic/University of Tennessee Fellowship in Endovascular Neurosurgery / Interventional Neuroradiology / Endovascular Neurology is a 24-month-long fellowship open to neurologists, neurosurgeons and neuroradiologists. This fellowship is one of the first CAST certified fellowships and one of the highest volume programs in the United States.

Post-graduate fellows are credentialed as attending physicians and function as an integral part of a multidisciplinary cerebrovascular team in a high volume collaborative practice that provides neurointerventional services at Methodist University Hospital, Baptist Memorial Hospital, the Regional One Trauma Center, and Le Bonheur Children's Hospital.

Fellows gain expertise in all aspects of Interventional neuroradiology including diagnostic cerebral and spinal angiography, and a range of vascular interventions including treatment of acute ischemic stroke, sharp and blunt cerebrovascular trauma, epistaxis, cerebral aneurysms, arterivenous malformations of the brain and spine and congenital cerebral and spinal malformations.

This expertise includes the management of patients with neurovascular disease, the performance of cerebrovascular and endovascular neurosurgery procedures, and the integration of cerebrovascular and endovascular neurosurgery therapy into the clinical management of patients. Academic research is emphasized with multiple ongoing pre-clinical and clinical projects.


2026 positions are complete and we are looking at only 2027 positions at this time.

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. 
Candidates for the 2027-2028 Academic Year will be able to apply exclusively on ERAS beginning in June 2025 and will Match through the NRMP in May 2026.

Learn the history of Memphis music at Elvis Presley’s Graceland, Stax Records, and Sun Studio. Soak in the sun at Shelby Farms or the Big River Crossing. Enjoy shopping at our Bass Pro Shop, housed in the tenth-tallest pyramid in the world, then explore the nightlife on historic Beale Street.

Those are just a few reasons Memphis was named one of Condé Nast Traveler’s 23 Best Places to Go in 2023. Our UT Health Science Center was also named the ninth safest college in America by
