Fellowship in Vascular Neurology at Northwell Health

Fellowship in Vascular Neurology at Northwell Health

About us

The Vascular Neurology fellowship is a one-year program seeking to train leaders in the fields of vascular neurology. The program is ACGME accredited in Vascular Neurology. One year provides the necessary rotations in vascular neurology, neuroradiology and neurorehabilitation medicine required for Vascular Neurology board eligibility.

Northwell Health provides high-quality clinical care to patients with stroke, including diagnostic evaluation, acute treatment, stroke prevention, management of complications, endovascular stroke therapy, counseling and social intervention. The fellow will have first-hand experience in the clinical management of complex stroke patients.

The fellow in this program will complete the following rotations:

  • Stroke inpatient and emergency care
  • Stroke outpatient, neurosonology
  • Interventional neuroradiology and neurorehabilitation

Opportunities to participate in clinical research are available. The fellowship also provides ample opportunity for pursuit of individual interests or projects.

Clinical rotations include the neuro ICU and stroke unit, where they participate in daily morning rounds with the supervision of the faculty, provide supervision of residents on weeknights and weekends and respond to stroke codes during weekdays and when on call. Fellows will gain experience in carotid doppler and transcranial doppler, as well as interventional neuroradiology. Further educational experiences include the outpatient stroke clinic, didactic lectures and reading assignments (including Journal club and personal mentoring).

Our stroke team includes board-certified vascular neurologists who are available 24/7.
