The fellowship is designed for general radiologists reporting neuroradiology cases or wishing to embark on a subspecialised path. Coverage of the entire field of diagnostic neuroradiology will be provided, however —thanks to the small group nature of the training— the programme is adaptable depending on the participants’ expectations and needs (including selection of lectures).
Selected topics will first be presented in a lecture format, followed by representative cases mixed with other neuroradiology cases - participants will review the images, first by themselves and then together with the mentor and the group. The aim is to reproduce the reading room experience, simulating and condensing full length neuroradiology fellowship programs.
Participation in this fellowship, limited to a maximum of 6 radiologists, will enhance and strengthen your knowledge in case interpretation. In this small group environment among your peers, you are free to ask questions, make mistakes, and learn together with the support of the radiologist mentor.
The fellowship will run during working hours (approximately 9:00 to 5:00pm) so participants will be free to explore the beautiful city of Barcelona in the evenings and weekend should you choose to extend your stay.
This fellowship is organised by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.
In terms of safety in relation to COVID-19, we will follow any restrictions and recommendations as provided by the Spanish government and the Torre Mapfre management at the time of the fellowship. We will evaluate the situation and inform participants of current rules and recommendations that we feel are best for the safety and comfort of the group.
"The setup of a small group with hands-on cases is excellent. I really found the fellowship useful and educating. It will eliminate confusion when reporting on degenerative spine and brain tumours in my practice."
Dr. Ioan Gemescu, Radiologist, University Emergency Hospital of Bucharest, Romania (Fellow, Feb 2020)
"I’m very satisfied with the course and the lecturer and believe these learnings will help me become more independent and confident on reporting neuroradiology cases correctly. I especially liked the one-on-one interaction with the lecturer Dr. Rumboldt throughout the week.”

- To identify the normal anatomic structures and recognise the main pathologic processes
- To define the differentiating imaging features of pathologic processes and to create clinically relevant reports
- To understand the clinical questions that need to be addressed in various settings and how to answer them
Programme will include
- Lectures covering a wide variety of topics in Brain, Head & Neck, and Spine imaging
- Individual reporting with supervision/ immediate feedback by the Mentor
- Group case discussion
- Workstations provided by TMC for the training week
- Access to all course materials via TMCA platform, including discussed cases (for 1 year following course)
- Daily lunches and coffee breaks with your peers and radiologist mentor
- Plenty of time for Q&A with the specialised radiologist mentor
- Certificate of attendance
Level II - General radiologist
The course is geared toward General Radiologists (Level II) with some neuroradiology experience. However, in a small group with plenty of one-on-one time with the radiologist mentor, there will be some flexibility within the programme for each participant.
