The Division of Neuroanesthesia at Icahn School of Medicine offers a one-year, non-ACGME fellowship in neurosurgical anesthesia. The training involves extensive clinical exposure to the field of neurosurgical anesthesia and includes craniotomies, spine surgery, interventional neuroradiology, and functional neurosurgery.
Goals and Objectives
We have designed this 12-month curriculum of research, teaching, and clinical experience to produce academic anesthesiologist ready to face challenges of the modern neurosurgical team. As part of this curriculum, fellows will:
- Engage in a 12-month research experience with a choice to participate in ongoing neurosurgical ICU projects, clinical neurosurgical research, or basic science experience in either bench lab or primate research in cognition and memory
- Participate in advanced cases in the neurosurgical OR and interventional radiology suite including skull based tumors, cerebral aneurysms, transphenoidal pituitary surgery, and complex spine surgery
- Participate in rotations in the Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit, neuroradiology, and neuromonitoring to enhance their understanding of perioperative care of the neurosurgical patient
- Design didactic activities for the neurosurgical anesthesia resident rotation and lectures for the resident conference series
- Gain experience in public speaking and presentation through speaking opportunities including production of an abstract for a national conference and grand rounds presentation for the Department of Neurosurgery
- Take the opportunity to participate in a medical mission to perform anesthesia for spinal deformity surgery as part of an established mission effort to either South America or Asia
