The Neuroanesthesiology Fellowship is a 12-month fellow/junior faculty program designed to train anesthesiologists in the subspecialty of neurosurgical anesthesiology. The curriculum includes training in operative neurosurgical anesthesiology, neurocritical care, intraoperative neuromonitoring, neurology/stroke medicine, vascular neurosonology, and neuroradiology.
The goal of the fellowship is to create academically viable neuroanesthesiologists to care for a complex and growing population of neurosurgical patients.
The applicant should have completed a 4 year ACGME accredited anesthesiology residency program in the USA and should be eligible for a Louisiana training medical license. International Medical Graduates (IMG's) with prior training in anesthesiology may be considered for the fellowship.
