Neurocritical Care Fellowship Program

Excellence in medical education has been a tradition of Mercy Hospital of Buffalo for over 100 years. The Neurocritical Care Fellowship Program at Mercy Hospital of Buffalo combines hospital activities, clinical research opportunities, teaching experience, and administrative training. There is available clinical, radiographic, and electrophysiology experience for those applying from other than a neuroscience background. Practical experience comes from multiple clinical settings and work with Neurocritical Care-certified physicians who strive to foster your personal interests.

The particular strength of the program is its collaboration between faculty from departments of neuroendovascular, neurology, neurosurgery, critical care medicine, cardiovascular surgery, cardiology, emergency medicine, radiology, and anesthesiology, and its association for training at the regional Level-One trauma center.

Upon successful completion, fellows are certified in Emergency Neurological Life Support and Advanced Cardiac Life Support, and they are board-eligible for the United Council of Neurologic Subspecialties Neurocritical Care examination. They will have developed a foundation in teaching and clinical research for their future careers.
