The MGH/BWH/Harvard Neurocritical Care Fellowship is a two-year UCNS-accredited program offtering broad and deep clinical training through a core clinical experience in neurocritical care in the Neuro-ICU and additional clinical training in general critical care within the Surgical, Medical, and Cardiac Intensive Care Units. We welcome applicants with a variety of long-term goals, including future clinicians who may be a clinical leader of an intensive care unit, a champion of clinical innovation, an independent federallyfunded investigator, or a leader spreading the international mission of neurocritical care.

We are proud to be not only the country's oldest neurocritical care training program, but also one of its most innovative. The outstanding care, clinical and research innovations, and clinical and research leadership provided and generated by our graduates have played a significant role in the transformation of acute and preventative care for patients across the world. To support our educational mission, we have built a program that stretches beyond the walls of the ICU, encompassing training in telemedicine, airway management, bedside emergency ultrasound, transcranial ultrasonography, general critical care, EEG and electrophysiology, bronchoscopy, formal simulation training, international health, guideline and protocol development for clinical practice innovation, and a major component of independent elective time for reinforcing these diverse clinical skills or for mentored academic research in a wide variety of settings.


Mission and Goals

  • Broad and deep clinical training inside and
        outside the neurocritical care environment
  • Increased independence with advancement
        in training
  • Diverse research experiences with strong
        faculty mentorship
  • Leadership training via fellow-driven design of
        patient management guidelines and protocols
  • Comprehensive didactic and hands-on
        procedural training
