The Neurocritical Care Fellowship has been re-accredited by the United Council of Neurological Subspecialties (UCNS) for a full five years with no citations, nor any need for a progress report or response to inquiry.
The highly-competitive NCC fellowship program, which accepts one fellow per year, provides physicians with the acute medical knowledge and technical skills to care for critically ill patients with neurological conditions. The fellowship, which was last accredited by the UCNS in 2012, is generally a 2 year program, though a 1 year option exists for trainees who have already completed a year of critical care fellowship training. The most recent 5-year accreditation from the UCNS applies to the 24 month program, and a similar result is anticipated for our 12-month training program.
“The accreditation of the NCC fellowship for the maximum period of 5 years is a real measure of success for our program,” says Lori Shutter, the NCC program director. “We are proud that the UCNS recognizes our fellowship as being of such high quality.”
