The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Division of Neurosciences Critical Care has a 30-year tradition of implementing leading edge education and research in its continuing service to acutely ill neurological and neurosurgical patients at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions.
The particular strength of the program is its collaboration between faculty from departments of neurosurgery, neurology and anesthesiology and critical care medicine.
Patient Care, Teaching, Team Management and Research
Our two-year fellowship program helps create clinical and research leaders in academic neurocritical care.
Fellows spend their first year developing patient care skills and teaching ICU medical students, house staff, and nurses in the bedside care of patients.
The second year adds responsibilities of team management and formal teaching of the concepts of neurophysiology, along with principles of treatment for various neuropathologic processes and general critical care issues.
Throughout both years, 50 percent protected research time allows fellows bandwidth to develop and execute clinical and translational research projects according to their interests, with close mentoring by faculty in neurology, neurosurgery, and anesthesia and critical care medicine.
The Foundation for a Strong Career
Upon successful completion, fellows are certified in advanced cardiac life support and advanced trauma life support. They are board-eligible for the United Council of Neurologic Subspecialties Neurocritical Care examination, and have accumulated a research and publication foundation for their academic career.
