The Neurosciences Critical Care Fellowship was approved in June 2017 by the United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties (UCNS), due to formally start on July 1, 2018. This 2 year fellowship will provide rigorous training in the Neurocritical Care and will include rotations in the Neurosciences critical care unit, as well as in other subspecialty intensive care units (medical, surgery and trauma, cardiac intensive care units) besides other clinical and research rotations preferred by the fellow candidates. The fellowship (currently approved for 2 fellows per year) will provide an exposure to a full spectrum of disease conditions encountered in a typical neurocritical care unit, direct hands- on training in various critical care procedures and interventions, and an opportunity to work in close collaboration with members of other sub-specialty teams. Educational and academic training will be provided by regular didactic and bedside teaching, active involvement in clinical research projects with protected research time. Close collaboration with disciplines like Stroke team, neurophysiology team, neuro-endovascular and neuro-radiology teams is expected and aimed to help prepare the fellows provide a multi-disciplinary care to the patients in the unit. The first Annual UCNS report of the program was completed in December 2017.
The aim of the UTMB Neurocritical Care Fellowship is to make the fellows clinically competitive, become proficient in basic and advanced ICU procedures, teaching the peers and juniors and attain leadership skills to work and progress as independent faculty members in future.
