Neurocritical Care Fellowship
Welcome to the Yale New Haven Hospital Fellowship Training Program in Neurocritical Care. We are honored to attract your interest in one of the nation’s premier training programs. Our faculty are nationally known for their leadership towards improving the care for those with acute neurological injury. During your training, you will be exposed to an environment that fosters clinical innovation and nurtures cutting edge research. You will enjoy learning and practicing in a highly collaborative environment with close partnerships in emergency medicine, neurosurgery, neuroradiology and trauma and critical care as well as extremely dedicated neuroscience nurses and advanced practice nurses.
A distinctive feature of this fellowship is the rapid but progressive stepwise autonomy that occurs during the two years of training. Fellows will gain proficiency in the medical management of general critical care patients thru additional core required rotations in the medical, surgical, and multitrauma ICUs. Procedural skills will include all core procedures outlined by the UCNS Fellowship training guidelines. Fellows will also participate in a nationally recognized cEEG-ICU program led by Dr. Larry Hirsch. Fellows become an important part of the rich research environment at Yale as well as the broader critical care training programs. Fellows have considerable elective time to pursue interests in clinical innovation, electives, quality improvement, international work, or research and opportunities exist for a post-graduate research year. We hope to attract fellows who pursue excellence in whatever area of interest inspires them.
Fellows train in the neuroscience intensive care unit for 12 months. One month each is spent in the cardiac or medical intensive care unit, trauma/surgical intensive care unit and with neuroanesthesiology. Fellows also have the unique opportunity to spend at least one dedicated month with the Yale ICU EEG program. Six months of elective are available over to pursue selected training and career development activities.
Fellows also participate and often lead weekly ICU based conferences including morbidity and mortality, journal club, and quality improvement. There is a dedicated didactic session for fellows twice a month which complements a general critical care curriculum jointly offered by our partners ICU’s at Yale New Haven Hospital.
We accept applicants from any parent specialty permitted by the United Council for Neurologic Specialties including neurology, neurosurgery, anesthesiology, emergency medicine, and internal medicine. Applicants are expected to have a strong academic record and proven ability for leading a multidisciplinary team. Interested individuals should submit a letter of interest, updated CV, and two letters of reference to:
