CAST Accredited Neurocritical Care Fellowship

Accredited by the Committee of Advanced Subspecialty Training, the Department of Neurosurgery at North Shore University Hospital offers a one year fellowship under the direction of Jamie Ullman, MD, Program Director.  The Neuro Critical Care Fellowship has been designed to educate neurosurgical fellows in the care of complex and diverse critically ill patients with primary or secondary neurologic injury, with a strong focus on neurotrauma.  Clinical experience will be gained at North Shore University Hospital and at Cohen Children’s Medical Center in the pediatric and neonatal intensive care units.  The program additionally offers residents the opportunity to apply for in-folded fellowship training.
