Brian Samm, MD, Class f 2023

Brian Stamm, MD, Class of 2023

"I will forever be thankful for my training at Northwestern’s Vascular Neurology Fellowship. There was an optimal balance between clinically rigorous rotations and the time/resources to pursue high-impact research and other academic projects. I had outstanding mentors in both the Vascular Neurology and Neurocritical Care Divisions, many of whom I continue to collaborate with after fellowship. Additionally, Chicago is truly a city with something for everyone. I had a blast!"

Movement Disorders

"As a fellow in a large academic program, I have had the privilege of learning how to manage a variety of movement disorders from a diverse group of experts in the field. In addition to patient care, I have been working towards a certificate in medical education and serve as a sub-investigator in several clinical trials. Lastly, my dedicated mentors have helped me publish first-author research papers and get involved in community outreach…all while still in my 1st year of fellowship!"

Vascular Neurology

"Northwestern offered a training environment that supported multiple components of my career goals. It has ample clinical exposure as a major stroke referral center. As a former resident, I saw firsthand the collaborative nature of the interventional, intensive care and stroke teams to provide multidisciplinary care to our stroke patients. In addition, the resources for answering research questions and the investment of the faculty is outstanding. Lastly, Chicago is an amazing place to live and work. Our culture within the Neurology Department fosters well-being personally and professionally."

"At Northwestern, I have a sense of being a part of something great. The opportunity for personal and career growth here is immense. I love being able to collaborate with multiple departments and drop into various clinics. All of the attendings are super welcoming. As a fellow, I get to take part in clinical trials for MS treatments and discuss interesting cases every week at our neuroimmunology conference."

Monika Manchanda, Class of 2021

Vascular Neurology

"The biggest draw for me about Northwestern Vascular Neurology was the outstanding mentorship and the quality of research and training, where I could be intellectually stimulated and challenged. Exploring and immersing myself in the rich history and landscape of Chicago was the icing on cake. Between wards, stroke codes, ICU, clinic, Chicago museums and restaurants - each day was a thrill!"

Naalia Gnzalez, Class f 2023

Natalia Gonzalez, Class of 2023

Multiple Sclerosis & Neuroimmunology

"I'm forever thankful for my MS & Neuroimmunology fellowship at Northwestern. In this year, I was exposed to a wide variety of cases, and I gained a solid foundation in MS care and other less common neuroimmunological diseases. The dedicated faculty provided insightful daily discussions, shaping my knowledge and experience for a successful career as a neuroimmunologist. Furthermore, they fostered a welcoming environment, demonstrated genuine care for my growth, and were highly supportive of research. I will carry this invaluable knowledge with me, enriching my ongoing journey in the field."
