Neurocritical Care Education
Medical students of Northwestern Universtiy Feinberg School of Medicine have opportunities to rotate in the Neuro-ICU as part of their core rotations or during sub-internship electives for more advanced students. During these rotations, their patient care duties are augmented by student-level didactics.
For Neurology residents of McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University, there are dedicated rotations in the Neuro-ICU across our three-year training program. In addition to resident-level didactics during these rotations, our faculty offer several resident-level teaching conferences focused on neurocritical topics every year. Our residents frequently participate in faculty research and also develop their own research projects during their residency.
Our division supports five Neurocritical Care fellowship positions; all administered through McGaw. The fellowship is certified by the United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties (UCNS) and transitioning to the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
