NCC Fellowship Now Offering Three Training Track Options

Wed, 02/10/2016

UPMC and the Department of Critical Care Medicine are now able to offer one-year neurocritical care fellowship training positions, meaning that those interested in neurocritical care fellowships now have three options open to them:

  1. A traditional 2-year training track for people from any background residency without prior critical care training,
  2. A 1-year track for people who already have completed critical care training through another board (IM/EM, Surg, Anes, Peds), which provides specialized neurocritical care training, and
  3. A 1-year concentrated critical care training track for neurosurgery residents, who can complete the training during their residency.

NCC Fellowship Program Director Lori Shutter was particularly pleased with the news. “The addition of 2 separate 1-year training tracks in neurocritical care (NCC) is a significant advancement for our program,” she said. “We are excited about the diversity these training options add to our multidisciplinary training program.” Dr. Shutter also thanked second-year NCC Fellows Deepa Malaiyandi, who did the majority of the paperwork for this application as one of her senior fellow projects.
