Neurocritical Care Fellowship

The Neurocritical Care Fellowship is a 2-year ACGME-accredited training program within the Division of Neurocritical Care at UT Southwestern. Neurocritical Care is jointly supported by both the Departments of Neurology and Neurological Surgery.

We have a diverse group of faculty members with training backgrounds in neurology, neuroanesthesia, pulmonary critical care, interventional neuroradiology, and a large Advanced Practice Provider Program.

Fellows gain valuable experience in managing acute neurological and neurosurgical conditions such as acute ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, subarachnoid hemorrhage, refractory status epilepticus, neuromuscular respiratory failure, neuroinfectious and autoimmune processes, traumatic brain and spinal cord injury, and more.

A 1-year fellowship training pathway is available for eligible candidates who have completed an accredited neurosurgical residency program or critical care fellowship program (anesthesia, surgical, internal medicine, or pediatric critical care).

We have significant experience with candidates from various educational backgrounds and welcome applicants from neurology, internal medicine, neurosurgery, emergency medicine, and anesthesia residency programs. While our strength is the breadth of our clinical experience, our primary goal is to provide high-quality, comprehensive, culturally relevant, and individualized mentorship and training to foster the development of fellows into well-rounded clinicians, scholars, and educators.
