The Fellowship Program in the Vascular Neurology affords extensive experience in clinical vascular neurology as well as clinical research training. A one-year fellowship position will be offered with rotations in the 24-bed Neuro Critical Care Unit (NCCU), the in-patient stroke unit and stroke service, the stroke consultation service, and in-patient rehabilitation ward. In addition, the fellow will have increasing responsibility during the year for supervising the Acute Stroke Team, managing an array of available diagnostic imaging techniques, directing IV thrombolysis, and assisting with acute endovascular interventions. The program encompasses the spectrum of cerebrovascular disease, from critically-ill patients with acute stroke, to the rehabilitation and secondary prevention of stroke victims.
The program is strongly committed to clinical research. It is anticipated that the postdoctoral fellow will complete a research project of his/her own and work with faculty writing manuscripts, reviews and potentially draft grant proposals. The Division has many collaborative studies with Neurocritical Care (Department of Anesthesia), Radiology, Neurosurgery, and Cardiac Surgery.
The Johns Hopkins Fellowship in Vascular Neurology is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
