Events Scheduled for the NCS 2017 Annual Meeting

The 2017 Annual meeting of the NCS, to be held in Hawaii, will feature a Professionalism and Leadership day on October 10, 2017. A morning session on Career advancement will be followed by two parallel afternoon sessions on building Future Leaders and Research Mentoring. The sessions are all free and open to all, and applications may be submitted for the afternoon events below: 

10/10 at 5:30 pm: Mentorship Mingle- A unique opportunity for trainees and junior faculty to engage with leaders in Neurocritical Care individual with out "Speed Mentoring" session. This will be followed by a Resident and Fellow Happy Hour at 6:30. Location TBD. 

10/13 at 1:00 pm: Resident and Fellow Specialty Focus Corner- Invited speakers offering advice for early, middle, and end of training.


Our collaborators are working on assessing the knowledge about ENLS and the NCS in non-neurology fields. As can be imagined, this is a critical growth area for the society and the field, and we are very keen on expanding this.



Our mentorship program connects trainees to established neurointensivists, for career guidance, research ideas, and many other activities. A new set of applications for mentor and mentee positions will be sent out this fall. Check out some of our current mentorship pairs here


The NCS RFC is very eager to add members, especially from non-neurology fields of medicine, as well as other fields like pharmacy, NPs, PAs and nursing. This will add breadth to our team and enable a multifaceted approach. International membership is also something we would be very happy to grow.

Promoting Neurocritical Care at Other Conferences

RFC members work closely with NCS to promote awareness of the field, society and annual meeting at various professional conferences, including AAN and SCCM. Events for trainees who attend these conferences, such as “speed mentoring” sessions, lunch talks and career development seminars have been held to benefit attendees with an interest in neurocritical care.




Currents, which is the quarterly news magazine of the Neurocritical Care society, is closely intertwined with the Residents and Fellows Committee. We have our own column, where we provide updates on the activities of our Committee. You can read it here

Pocket Guide

This summer, we will be coming out with the first edition of the Neurocritical Care pocketguide, with each chapter written by a trainee and a senior member. We will be having updates every year and welcome applications for help in writing. This will be targeted at trainees, and will be the first such book of its kind. 

Trainees’ Section of the NCC Journal

The RFC was instrumental in setting up a Trainees section in the Neurocritical Care journal – we invite contributions, typically in the shape of case reports or interesting anecdotes, ideally with two authors – one trainee, and one established neurointensivists. View the journal here
