Neurocritical Care Fellowship

The Neurocritical Care fellow will receive excellent critical-care training from a multidisciplinary faculty, as well as valuable experience with commonly encountered diseases/conditions such as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, stroke (ischemic and hemorrhagic), brain tumors, vascular malformations, dural venous sinus thrombosis, neuromuscular emergencies, Guillain-Barré syndrome, and myasthenia gravis.

The University of Utah Hospital is a designated Level 1 Trauma Center, which allows for exposure to a full range of cases. Over the course of the year, the fellow will become proficient in the care of critically ill patients with underlying disorders of the brain and spine. The majority of the fellow's clinical time will be spent in the 23-bed neurocritical care unit, which is the busiest ICU in the University of Utah hospital system.
