We believe in providing our fellows with a broad and balanced clinical training involving neurointensive care, including intracranial physiology, ICU medicine and bedside procedures.
The Neuro-Critical Care Unit (NCCU) at Tufts Medical Center is a combined 15-bed Neurosciences Critical Care Unit and Neurosciences Intermediate Care Unit that opened in March, 2011. Since its inception, the primary goal of the NCCU has been to provide state-of-the-art multidisciplinary care for patients but also focus on support and education of the families of patients.
We offer one fellowship position each year for a 24 month training period. This fellowship is part of the San Fransico Match.
We have several Neurologists, Neurosurgeons, and colleagues in associated departments who are interested in having fellows lead research projects and provide mentorship for the development of your own areas of research. We can also provide guidance and mentorship regarding activities related to quality improvement and education.
Our Neurology team is always looking for ways to improve medicine. Right now, our researchers are studying neuromuscular diseases, stroke, and fatigue in patients with high grade glioma. To view all of our on going research, visit our webpage.
