This fellowship is unique due to the broad curriculum in both neurocritical care and cerebrovascular medicine.
Cincinnati Children's has three faculty who specialize in neurocritical care, each with subspecialty clinical and research interests. The group services the hospital inpatient consult service for 44 weeks annually, providing decision support to faculty and residents throughout the year. Our consistent presence on the critical care units have made neurology an indispensable service for the hospital. We employ evidence-based care and continuously refine care algorithms to ensure state-of-the-science care for our patients. In this way, the same faculty who meet families in the trauma bay remain a vital part of the care team in the recovery clinic. Fellows immediately become leaders of the care team that families rely upon to guide their child’s recovery.
The Cerebrovascular Center provides multidisciplinary care to children and young adults with stroke and vascular anomalies. Faculty bring specialty expertise from neurology, neurosurgery, interventional radiology, hematology, genetics, psychology, rehabilitation, neuroradiology, and radiation oncology together to deliver better care to children. This team of clinician scientists are active researchers studying the biology, developmental pathology, behavioral outcomes and cutting-edge imaging techniques in pediatric vascular disease. We are leaders in education, hosting CME events multiple times yearly locally and nationally. Fellows are introduced to the team their first month at Cincinnati Children's and then participate in acute management, conferences, CME, and clinical duties throughout the year.
