Pediatric Neurocritical Care Fellowship

Pediatric Neurocritical Care Fellowship

The Pediatric Neurocritical Care Program at the University of Washington School of Medicine invites applications from candidates interested in fellowship training in pediatric critical care neurology at Seattle Children’s Hospital. Applicants for the Pediatric Neurocritical Care Fellowship should be trained in either child neurology or critical care medicine by the time they begin the program (start date July 1).

During this one-year training program, the fellow will develop expertise in the recognition, evaluation and approach to neuroprotection of acute neurologic insults in the Pediatric, Cardiac and Neonatal Intensive Care Units, including cardiac arrest; stroke; refractory status epilepticus; traumatic brain injury; autoimmune and demyelinating disorders; CNS infections; metabolic, neuromuscular disorders; and neurologic complications of critical illness. Seattle Children’s Hospital has active cardiac surgery, ECMO, vascular neurology and transplant programs, and the fellow will gain specific expertise in the neurologic care and monitoring of these populations.

The fellowship training will also include rotations in neurosurgery, adult neurointensive care, neurophysiology, rehabilitation medicine and neuroradiology. The fellow will participate in a specialty Neurology–ICU follow-up clinic, and will be responsible for the outpatient care of their patients after discharge from the ICU. In addition, the fellow will participate in Neurocritical Care conferences and a structured didactic program in pediatric neurocritical care. Extensive experience will be gained in neurophysiologic monitoring of the critically ill patient, including quantitative EEG monitoring and use of transcranial dopplers.

Two training tracks are available depending on the candidate’s previous fellowship training in either child neurology or pediatric critical care medicine. The fellowship is supported by the Divisions of Critical Care and Pediatric Neurology. Focused clinical research will be encouraged and there are ample opportunities and mentors within the Divisions of Neurology and Critical Care Medicine.

This is a non-ACGME accredited position with no corresponding board certification.


Prerequisites for the fellowship include successful completion of either a pediatric critical care fellowship or pediatric neurology residency with completion of, or eligibility to sit for, the corresponding subspecialty boards.

How To Apply:

Inquiries should be directed by email to the Fellowship Director, Dr. Mark Wainwright at [email protected] and include a current curriculum vitae, brief personal statement and (for non–U.S. citizens or permanent residents) visa documentation.
