Abstract

Endovascular neurosurgery/interventional neuroradiology/endovascular surgical neuroradiology is a rapidly evolving subspecialty that incorporates the knowledge and skills from neurosurgery and neuroradiology. The CV Section and ASITN have worked together extensively to establish a training curriculum that allows for the diverse backgrounds of potential trainees. The ACGME has recognized this curriculum and has adopted it as the standard for training program accreditation. Nevertheless, we should be cognizant of the fact that as the field of neuroendovascular therapy evolves, last year's solutions may prove to be this year's problems. It may be time for neurosurgeons to consider training in endovascular neurosurgery in the same way that we train neurosurgeons in every other neurosurgical discipline.
