Academics and Training

Neurocritical Care Fellowship

The Neurocritical Care Fellowship at Oregon Health & Science University offers two UCNS-approved tracks to train neurointensivists. Both programs permit certification in Neurocritical Care and allow fellows to sit for the NCC boards. The traditional 24 month track welcomes fellows with a variety of backgrounds, including Neurology and Anesthesia. The 12 month track is open to fellows with Critical Care training in Anesthesia, Pulmonary or Medical Critical Care or Neurosurgery.

The Neuroscience ICU at OHSU is a 17 bed ICU with a strong educational balance of General Critical Care, Neurology and Anesthesia. Our attendings in Anesthesia and Neurology share coverage 24/7 and the Neurocritical Care fellows are joined each month by two or three Critical Care Medicine, Pulmonary or Anesthesia fellows; an optimal blend of clinical experience that emphasizes the unity of ICU medicine.

OHSU has the Primary Stroke Center certification from JCAHO and an Interventional Radiology program that performs over 70 mechanical thrombectomies per year. Our fellows are encouraged to participate in these programs as electives, or spend several months gaining particular expertise in these fields.

Our OHSU Neurocritical Care Fellowship also has a research track for immersion into basic science as well as a Masters of Clinical Research track and simultaneous MBA and MPH programs that our fellows may choose to optimize career options.
