The fellowship, said Maysaa Basha, M.D., FAES, FANA, associate professor and interim chair of the Department of Neurology, offers specialized training in the management of critically ill patients with neurological and neurosurgical disorders. The program provides a comprehensive approach to treating conditions such as traumatic brain injury, ischemic stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage, intracerebral hemorrhage, spinal cord injury and neuromuscular disorders. Through a combination of clinical experience, didactics and research opportunities, fellows in the program develop the skills necessary to become leaders in the field of neurocritical care.

“This accreditation recognizes the program's commitment to providing exceptional education and training opportunities to its fellows,” Dr. Basha said.

The program is directed by Wazim Mohamed, M.D., associate professor of Neurology, and supported by Phil Ross, D.O., assistant professor of Neurology; Arun Sherma, M.D., assistant professor of Neurology; and Syeda Muzammil, M.D., staff physician.

The two-year program received accreditation for two positions, and candidates are now being interviewed.
