Stroke & Neurocritical Patient Care

Our faculty work with patients though Feinberg's affiliated care facilities. Students have the opportunity to experience the range of acute stroke care on our Chicago campus at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, including:
  • Emergency department (thrombolysis)
  • Angiography suite (clot extraction)
  • Neuro-ICU
  • Stroke unit
  • Rehabiltiation unit
  • Outpatient clinic

Through Northwestern Medicine’s Comprehensive Stroke Center, our clinical faculty are part of a multidisciplinary team approach to care for patients and families impacted by the most serious and life-threatening neurological injuries. Stroke specialists, neurointensivists, neurosurgeons and endovascular radiologists work closely together to apply innovative, multimodality approaches to provide early intervention and advanced monitoring for stroke and acute brain or spinal cord injured patients in order to minimize long-term injury and improve clinical outcomes.
