Mayo Clinic is pleased to announce the opening of a two-year Neurocritical Care Fellowship beginning in July 2013. We are now recruiting fellows for July 2014. Mayo Clinic also offers a one-year Neurohospitalist Fellowship with applications accepted on a rolling basis. If you have neurology residents who are interested in Neurocritical Care or Neurohospitalist Medicine Fellowship please contact Dr. W. David Freeman, M.D. the Neurocritical Care Fellowship Director, or Dr. Kevin Barrett, the Neurohospitalist Fellowship Director, and Ms. Rachel White, Program Coordinator at the emails below. Feel free to forward this information to any residents you think might be interested as well.
The Mayo Neurocritical care fellowship is a 2-year fellowship which will provide excellent clinical training and procedural skills in the intensive care unit setting. Fellows will demonstrate the ability to manage critically ill patients primarily with neurological and neurosurgical disorders, as well as rotate through other ICU settings such as medical, surgical, transplant and trauma ICUís. Fellows will demonstrate proficiency in a variety of procedures including basic and advanced airway/intubation, mechanical ventilation, central venous lines, arterial lines, percutaneous tracheostomy, lumbar drains/punctures, intrathecal procedures, TCD, and EEG. There is also a one-month rotation in the operating room to learn neuroanesthesia and intraoperative physiology and management. There is also up to 6 months of electives or research. Fellows are encouraged to pursue research, and Mayo has a number of intramural and extramural (NIH K grant) mechanisms that are possible for fellows to obtain in terms of career development with clinical or bench research mentors.
The Neurohospitalist Fellowship at Mayo Clinic Florida is designed to provide the trainee with clinical and procedural skills necessary for efficient delivery of high quality care to patients with acute neurologic illness and acute neurologic complications of inpatient general medical and surgical conditions. The curriculum includes developing proficiency with remote telepresence technology, transcranial Doppler, and EEG. At the conclusion of the fellowship, the trainee will be well-prepared to provide timely and evidence-based therapies for a wide-spectrum of neurological disease processes in an academic or community setting. The trainee will be prepared to lead quality-improvement initiatives, outcomes-based research projects, and direct efforts for achievement of institutional accreditation for primary stroke center certification by Joint Commission.
Candidates must have successfully completed an ACGME-accredited residency program in the United States or Canada, be board-eligible in Neurology, and have a license to practice in the state of Florida by July 1st of the fellowship year.
