Independent Clinical Fellowship in Cerebrovascular Neurosurgery (CAST accredited) at North Shore University Hospital

The Department of Neurosurgery at North Shore University Hospital offers a one-year, CAST approved fellowship in cerebrovascular neurosurgery, providing enhanced knowledge of all aspects of cerebrovascular micro-neurosurgery.  This includes case formulation, diagnosis, radiographic review, microsurgical technique, intra-operative decision-making and post-operative care.  In addition, we have a busy and robust endovascular service, comprised of three physicians who are well integrated into our cerebrovascular program. The entire spectrum of endovascular procedures are regularly performed, inclusive of aneurysm coiling, stent-assisted coiling, and embolization of AVMs, dural fistulae, tumors, and carotid-cavernous fistulae.  The program has a proven commitment to research and scholarly activity, excellent hospital resources, and an academic environment that includes medical students, residents, and a robust educational program. Eligible applicants are required to have completed an ACGME-approved neurosurgical residency training program or training equivalent.
