About the Program

Our program was approved by UCNS at the beginning of 2019 The AdventHealth Neurocritical Care Fellowship Training Program offers 12-24 month training in neurocritical care accredited by the UCNS. The trainees will rotate through our 40-bed neuroscience ICU housed in the Ginsburg Tower at AdventHealth Orlando. This training will provide an opportunity for fellows to manage patients with life-threatening neurological and neurosurgical illnesses. We are dedicated to the treatment of patients with acute neurologic conditions such as:

  • Acute ischemic stroke
  • Intracerebral hemorrhage
  • Subarachnoid hemorrhage
  • Subdural hemorrhage
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Refractory seizures and status epilepticus
  • Central nervous system infections
  • Severe neuromuscular and neuroimmunologic diseases
  • Patients after complex neurosurgical and neurointerventional procedures.

The fellowship will be located at one site in Orlando. We are a nearly 1300 bed hospital with 160 adult ICU beds. 28 neuro/neurosurgical ICU beds and additional 12 neuro/neurosurgical intermediate/stepdown beds.
