Dr. Carhuapoma earned his medical degree at Cayetano Heredia Peruvian University, Alberto Hurtado School of Medicine in Lima, Peru. He completed both a transitional residency and a residency in neurology at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan before coming to The Johns Hopkins Hospital to complete at fellowship in neurosciences critical care.
After his training, Dr. Carhuapoma practiced neurocritical care at Columbia University Medical Center in New York and at Detroit Receiving Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. He is now an Associate Professor of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Anesthesiology/Critical Care Medicine at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and directs the neurosciences critical care fellowship program.
Dr. Carhuapoma's current research interests include the different hemodynamic and metabolic aspects of cerebral blood flow under physiologic conditions and after acute brain injury as well as their significance in neurologic outcome. He is also interested in the use of MRI techniques in the study and understanding of ongoing neuronal damage after brain injury to design and assess therapies used in neurologic critical care and the natural history and impact on neurological outcome of perihematoma brain edema following ICH.
