Neuroanesthesiology Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital

The Division of Neuroanesthesia offers one 12-month 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. The fellowship program is not affiliated with the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Our curriculum of research, teaching, and clinical experience prepares you to be an academic anesthesiologist ready to face the challenges of an advanced neurosurgical team. As part of this program, you will:

  • Engage in a 12-month research experience with a choice to participate in ongoing neurosurgical intensive care unit (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 operating room and interventional radiology suite including skull based tumors, cerebral aneurysms, transsphenoidal pituitary surgery, and complex spine surgery.
  • Take part in rotations in the neurosurgical ICU, neuroradiology, and neuromonitoring to enhance your understanding of perioperative care of neurosurgical patients.
  • Design didactic activities for neurosurgical anesthesia resident rotations and lectures for the resident conference series.
  • Gain experience in public speaking and presentations through speaking opportunities, such as national conferences and Grand Rounds presentations for our department.
  • Perform anesthesia for spinal deformity surgery as part of an established mission effort to either South America or Asia.
