Vascular Neurology (Stroke) Fellowship Information
The Vascular Neurology (Stroke) Fellowship Program offers comprehensive training in the management of neurovascular disease, including experience in acute and chronic research protocols and experience in the management of complicated cerebrovascular disorders requiring experimental therapies. Four staff neurologists run the program which exposes trainees to a wide variety of neurovascular disease. Parkland Memorial Hospital admits 40 stroke patients a month, and there is an active stroke program and separate stroke unit at this facility.
At the adjoining Zale Lipshy University Hospital approximately 300 aneurysm and 45 AVM cases are treated each year, more than any other facility in North America. Training in Transcranial Doppler is also available. Clinical stroke studies are offered to patients in both hospitals. Independent research projects are encouraged.
A bimonthly Stroke Conference is held where fellows and faculty present the latest information on stroke diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment. A weekly Cerebrovascular Conference, in conjunction with the Department of Neurological Surgery, explores treatment and diagnostic options for patients with complicated neurovascular disease.
