The UNC HealthCare Comprehensive Stroke Center offers a one-year, ACGME-accredited fellowship with emphasis on acute stroke treatment and diagnosis/prevention of stroke and TIA. Fellows will divide their clinical time between inpatient care in the UNC Hospitals Stroke Center (Neurosciences ICU, ISCU, and Ward Service) and outpatient care in the UNC Stroke Clinic. Clinical research experience will include participation in a variety of acute stroke trials and stroke prevention trials.
The UNC Hospitals are located in the “Buckle of the Stroke Belt” and admits approximately 700 stroke/TIA patients annually. The Stroke Center includes 4 stroke faculty members, a stroke nurse coordinator, stroke fellows, an acute stroke team, and a clinical trials unit. There are currently active collaborations with the Departments of Emergency Medicine, Interventional Neuroradiology, Neurosurgery, and Cardiology, as well as with the UNC School of Public Health. State-of-the-art vascular neuroimaging is available including 3.0 and 1.5 T MRI systems capable of DWI/PWI and 16-detector spiral CT scanners with CT angiography and CT perfusion imaging capabilities.
Applicants must complete a ACGME neurology residency and be ABPN board eligible or board certified in neurology prior to the start of the fellowship.
Apply by sending a completed GME application, a letter of interest, a current curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation, which should include one from the Hospital in which the applicant has most recently served and two from members of its professional staff.
