Fellows will gain expertise in the science and pathophysiology of diagnosis and management of those disease conditions, which represent the spectrum of this novel and underserved neurologic subspecialty with high exposure and expertise in multiple neuroimmunological diseases and integrating other relevant services such as adult neuroimmunology, pediatric neuro-rheumatological, as well as neuroinfectious diseases.

Pediatric Neurocritical Care

The goal of our fellowship program is to equip the next generation of pediatric neurologists, intensivists and neurosurgeons to be leaders in the field of pediatric neurocritical care. We emphasize training across a spectrum of critical illness, include direct and indirect brain injury, and along the entire longitudinal care continuum. We aim to provide a rich and rigorous academic environment that is individualized to a fellow’s career goals.

Sleep Medicine
