University of Western Australia – MD4 IMP3 Selective

Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation NIISwa will not be offering the UWA MD4 IMP3 Selective for the foreseeable future, until the needs for social distancing change. We apologise for the inconvenience and hope we will be able to offer this rotation again in the near future.

The Neurointervention/Interventional Neuroradiology IMP3 selective rotation is organised through the MD program at the University of Western Australia, and allows students to be exposed to the role of endovascular and minimally invasive therapy in the management of neurovascular conditions such as:

  • subarachnoid haemorrhage
  • intracranial aneurysms
  • hyperacute ischaemic strokes
  • craniocervical vascular occlusive diseases
  • cerebral and spinal vascular malformations
  • epistaxis
  • hypervascular craniospinal tumours requiring devascularization
  • Lesions requiring invasive transvascular neurophysiological or biochemical testing
  • The rotation is based at the SCGH site and is fully clinical, and students are expected to become a part of the clinical neurointervention team, comprising of the neurointervention fellow, service registrar, two resident medical officers, under the supervision of the consultant, and participate in daily ward rounds, attend stroke calls and other duties.

    Students will be assessed as per the criteria set by the University for IMP3 Selective placements.
