The Vascular Neurology fellowship program at the University of Chicago provides trainees with an intensive experience in the care of acute stroke patients as well as a broad exposure to academic opportunities in vascular neurology. The University of Chicago Comprehensive Stroke Center provides a rich clinical environment for exposure to large stroke case volumes arising from the local community, presenting to the medical center emergency room, the busiest in stroke volumes in the metropolitan area. In addition, associated medical centers refer complex or critical cases to our center for tertiary care. Our Neurocritical Care division hosts a top-ranked training program, and our Neurovascular Surgery program leads the nation in innovations in treatments for intracerebral hemorrhage and cerebral cavernous malformations.
In addition to clinical excellence, training at the University of Chicago entails an academic environment that fosters active involvement in scholarship and publication among trainees, aiming to produce leaders in academic neurology. Rich opportunities are available for mentorship in training in clinical trials, translational laboratory science, health studies, and stroke systems of care.
