Neurocritical Care Education

Fellows within the program will train at both Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospitals in Boston, MA.

The MGB neurocritical care fellowship training program is proud to be not only the country’s oldest neurocritical care training program, but also one of its most innovative. The outstanding care, clinical and research innovations and leadership provided and generated by our graduates have played a significant role in the transformation of acute and preventative care for patients across the world.

To support this educational mission, we have built a program that stretches beyond the walls of the NeuroICU, encompassing comprehensive training in general and surgical critical care, airway management, EEG and multi-modal neuromonitoring, bedside point of care ultrasound, formal simulation training and a major component of independent elective time for reinforcing these diverse clinical skills.

A unique aspect of our program is the strong individualized mentorship provided to each trainee. We devote substantial effort to the career development of our fellows, recognizing that each of you comes to us with different backgrounds, different strengths and different goals. We work with fellows individually, getting to know them and helping each one of them to identify a uniquely tailored career direction that will lead to substantial professional contributions as well as personal satisfaction.

We welcome applicants with a variety of long-term goals, including future clinicians and champions of clinical innovation and quality improvement, clinician-scientists, and clinician-educators. We believe that learning and applying a scientifically-based rigorous approach to data analysis, at the bedside and in research, is the foundation for providing outstanding care to the patients of today and improving the care of patients of tomorrow.
