Department of Neurology

Fellowship Team

One of the major strengths of our fellowship is our multidisciplinary core faculty, and their commitment to teaching and mentoring fellows clinically and academically. Trainees from all backgrounds will tremendously benefit from working directly with attendings from six difference subspecialties in our NeuroICUs: Neurology, Neurological Surgery, Anesthesiology, Pulmonology & Critical Care, Emergency Medicine, and Pediatrics.
