About the Program
The Neurocritical Care Program trains physicians in the acute care of critically ill patients with an underlying neurological process. Specific diseases and conditions include but are not limited to: cerebrovascular disorders, neurotrauma, neuro-oncology, refractory seizures, neuromuscular diseases, infections, alterations in consciousness, and perioperative neurosurgical care.
The fellowship is two years; with 12 months in a critical care setting (nine in the Neuroscience ICU) and the additional 12 months can be designed to focus on specific critical care subspecialities, vascular neurology, critical care EEG, clinical or basic science research or pediatric neurocritical care. In addition to the core neurocritical care skills, fellows are trained in advanced bedside ultrasound, including point of care ECHO, and advanced airway management, including fiberoptics and video-laryngoscopy.
Clinical services are provided in UC Medical Center’s Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit (NSICU), which is a 20-bed state-of-the-art intensive care unit with specialized neuro-monitoring options, transcranial Doppler, continuous video EEG, in-unit portable head CT and computerized radiology linkage. The neurocritical care team is the primary admitting team for most patients admitted to the NSICU.
Core faculty includes certified neuro-intensivists, with adjunct faculty from neurology, neurosurgery, trauma, anesthesia and pulmonary critical care.
