ACGME-accredited NYC NCC Fellowship (Montefiore/Albert Einstein CoM)

ACGME-accredited NYC NCC Fellowship
Montefiore/Albert Einstein CoM
The Montefiore/Albert Einstein CoM Neurocritical Care Fellowship is the only ACGME-accredited program in NY, and one of only two such programs in the entire eastern US. Our goal is to produce well-rounded neurointensivists who will be adept at caring for the full gamut of critically ill patients. The fellowship takes place at Moses Hospital, the mothership of the 15 hospital Montefiore Health System. Moses is the only tertiary care center and only Comprehensive Stroke Center in the Bronx. Our 10 bed Neuroscience ICU (NSICU) admits the full spectrum of neuromedical, cerebrovascular and neurosurgical patients. We are tightly integrated with a 15 bed Neuroscience Step-down. NSICU has 24-hour coverage by attendings and neurocritical care PAs. Available equipment includes:

• built-in video EEG in all rooms
• brain tissue oximetry (Raumedic)
• temperature modulation devices (Arctic Sun)
• pupillometers
• portable CT scanner
• point-of-care ultrasound (Sonosite Xporte)
• disposable bronchoscopes (Ambu)
• video laryngoscope (Glidescope Core)

Neurocritical Care is part of the multidisciplinary Division of Critical Care Medicine, which also sponsors one of the largest CCM fellowships in the US. Fellowship features:

• NSICU is staffed by 3 fellowship-trained neurointensivists
• Total of 12 neurocritical care board certified MDs in the division
• A robust simulation training program taking place at Montefiore-Einstein’s state-of-the-art simulation center. Sessions for endotracheal intubation, vascular access, thoracentesis & chest tube placement, neurologic emergencies, cardiac arrest, and more.
• Three-day critical care ultrasonography course and weekly ultrasound conference both led by nationally recognized faculty.
• Required rotations in SICU, MICU, CSICU, critical care consult service and critical care EEG. Robust programs for heart, lung, liver, pancreas & kidney transplant, VADs and ECMO
• Rotations in stroke and neuroradiology for fellows with non-neuro background
• Daily didactics

A 12-month track is available for neurosurgeons or those who will have completed another critical care fellowship.
