Neuroanesthesia Fellowship Didactic Curriculum
Monthly lectures (1-2 hours) in neurophysiology and monitoring, neuroanesthesia and critical care will be presented by neuroanesthesia faculty.
Fellows will also participate in monthly lectures in Surgical Critical Care (1 hour) at the MGH, and during their neuro ICU rotation, weekly lectures in neurocritical care.
Fellows are also expected to attend the weekly Neuroanesthesia lectures and Anesthesia Grand Rounds and Case Conferences offered at both MGH and BWH.
She/he is expected to present and discuss articles at the anesthesia section meetings, as well as to prepare and formally present two topics in neuroanesthesia over the course of the year.
Expected reading will include publications in leading anesthesiology/neuroanesthesia journals,
a major textbook of neuroanesthesia (e.g.,
Cottrell and Young's Anesthesia and Neurosurgery), and
selected readings from major texts of neurosurgery (e.g., Grossman's Principles of Neurosurgery),
neuroradiology (e.g., Connors' Interventional Neuroradiology), and
neuromonitoring (e.g., Russell's Primer of Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring).
In addition, fellows will be expected to read original research in leading medical journals related to anesthesiology,
neurocritical care, neurosurgery, and neurology.
These sources will be made available through the departmental libraries and the Countway Library eCommons system (Harvard Medical School).
Other Didactic Opportunities
Fellows are expected to attend the annual Society for Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care scientific meeting and participate in the workshops, mentoring sessions, and PBLDs.
The meeting includes lectures and presentations on topics of particular interest to neuroanesthesiologists and neurocritical care physicians.
Fellows are also encouraged to participate in the Society for Neurocritical Care annual meeting, and the preceding review course in neurocritical care.
