How to Apply
All fellow candidates must have completed an ACGME/RCPSC accredited residency training program. Our program will accept applicants with residency training in neurology, emergency medicine, neurosurgery, internal medicine, anesthesia, or surgery. Other specialties will be considered on an individual basis. Our program can support J-1 Visa applicants.
There are up to three fellow positions offered each year, and our program participates in the SF Match Central Application Service.
T32 Training Grant
The overarching goal of the UCMC/UC College of Medicine Neurocritical Care Fellowship Program is to train well-rounded neurointensivists to excel in all aspects of critical care management of patients with neurological conditions. There are two tracks availbale to NCC fellows at UCMC/COM, standard clinical and NIH-sponsored T-32 Research. The shared core curriculum of both tracks requires rotations as the primary fellow in the Surgical ICU (SICU), Cardiovascular ICU (CVICU), Medical ICU (MICU) and at least 9 months in the Neuroscience ICU (NSICU). NCC fellows experience their clinical training at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, the region’s only Level 1 trauma center and a quarternary care referral center. The core neurocritical care faculty are responsible for the didactic activities of the fellows as required by the training program including: journal clubs, grand rounds, quality improvement, case conferences, and topic-specific lectures.
Unique to the UC program, we have an available NIH-sponsored, competitive-application T32 training grant in Neurocritical Care available to qualified applicants. To our knowledge, this is the only T32 available to neurocritical care trainees in the nation. The application process for the T32 is similar to the standard pathway, but involves a separate match in the San Francisco Match program, and the program is 3 years in total and culminates with graduation from the UC Graduate School with a Master’s Degree in Clinical and Translational Science. Applicants with interest are encouraged to contact the program director, Jordan Bonomo (Jordan.Bonomo@uc.edu), as soon as possible to discuss the T32 requirements and opportunities.
