Advanced Training in Neurocritical Care

Department of Neurology Medical Education

University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, in collaboration with Case Western Reserve University, offers a comprehensive Neurocritical Care Fellowship that provides physicians with a unique combination of cognitive, diagnostic and therapeutic skills necessary for the delivery of neurocritical care. Neurocritical care is an evolving subspecialty, integrating clinical expertise in neurology, neurosurgery and intensive care medicine to diagnose and treat critically ill patients with neurological disease.

Neurological Intensive Care

The purpose of the Neurocritical Care Fellowship training program is to prepare the physician for the independent practice of neurological intensive care. Our approach is based on supervised clinical work, with increasing patient care responsibility over the course of the training program. The Neurocritical Care Fellowship Program, in collaboration with Case Western Reserve University, has a strong foundation of organized instruction in basic elements of neurological, neurosurgical and medical aspects of critical care.


All fellows conduct clinical or basic research during the course of the training. There is tremendous support available at University Hospitals and Case Western Reserve University for developing research projects.
