NeuroCritical Care Fellowship

About the Program

The Neurocritical Care Program at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center (UCMC) trains physicians in the acute care of critically ill patients with an underlying neurological process. The faculty consists of 9 neurointensivists from backgrounds including neurology/neurovascular and epilepsy, anesthesiology, emergency medicine, internal medicine/critical care and pediatric neurocritical care. Specific diseases and conditions include but are not limited to: cerebrovascular disorders, neurotrauma, neuro-oncology, refractory status epilepticus, neuromuscular diseases, infections, encephalopathy, and perioperative neurosurgical care. The NCC service is also responsible for all targeted temperature management (TTM) for comatose survivors of cardiac arrest at UCMC. In addition, Neurocritical care fellows at UCMC rotate as the primary fellows in all other ICUs including, medical, surgical, cardiac/ECMO and burns.

The fellowship is two years; with at least 13 months in a critical care unit (10 months in the Neuroscience ICU) and the additional 12 months can be designed to focus on specific critical care subspecialities, vascular neurology, critical care EEG and multimodal monitoring, clinical or basic science research or pediatric neurocritical care. In addition to the core neurocritical care skills, fellows are trained in advanced bedside ultrasound, including advanced point of care ECHO, and advanced airway management, including fiberoptic and video assisted laryngoscopy, advanced vascular access and may also gain experience in the placement of intracranial monitors.

Clinical services are provided in the UCMC Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit (NSICU), which is a 20-bed state-of-the-art intensive care unit with specialized neuro-monitoring, Moberg system integration of complex multimodal monitoring, transcranial Doppler, continuous video EEG and compressed density spectral array EEG processing at the bedside. The neurocritical care team is the primary admitting team for most patients admitted to the NSICU. 

Core faculty includes certified neuro-intensivists, with adjunct faculty from neurology, neurosurgery, trauma, anesthesia and pulmonary critical care. 

Our fellowship emphasizes multidisciplinary training and endeavors to ensure that our graduates are outstanding neurointensivists and able to comfortably attend in any ICU environment they choose post-graduation. If you are looking to train in a high-speed low-drag cutting edge environment, please consider applying to our program.
