The Neurocritical Care Fellowship in the Department of Neurological Surgery at Indiana University School of Medicine provides trainees high exposure to trauma and neurovascular disorders, including aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage and intracerebral hemorrhage. The unit is managed between neurosurgeons, critical care physicians, and trauma/critical care surgeons. Participating fellows have significant opportunity for clinical research in this one-year fellowship program.
IU Health Methodist Hospital, one of three Level 1 adult trauma centers in Indiana, houses one of the largest Neurocritical Care Units in the country, covering the entire spectrum of neurological disorders. Physicians who staff the unit are CAST-certified in Neurocritical Care. Neurosurgeons commonly consult on adult and pediatric patients suffering from a traumatic injury, such as those with traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries.
Applicants for this fellowship must be residents or graduates of neurosurgical residency programs in the United States that are approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), or from neurosurgical programs in Canada that are approved by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. The department is unable to accept applicants with an ECFMG Visa. Interested candidates should submit a CV and letter of interest to the Department of Neurological Surgery Director of Education.
