Neurology Pre-Residency Fellowship

Neurology Pre-Residency Fellowship

The University of New Mexico is now accepting applications for our Neurology pre-residency fellowship with a start date of July 1st, 2020. Our unique program is designed to provide an intensive educational experience and opportunity to gain clinical skills and experience in academic neurology to prepare for categorical residency training.

Over the course of 12 months, trainees rotate through our dedicated, state-of-the-art Neuroscience ICU, spend time on the acute stroke inpatient service, and have the opportunity to choose clinical electives based on their own interest. Clinical training is supplemented with case simulations and a tailored offering of didactics, ranging from neuroanatomy and neuroradiology, to management of neurocritical illness. Trainees are expected to attend and participate in all other resident didactics.

Trainees are exposed to a variety of different disease entities, including some not frequently encountered elsewhere, such as: Moya-Moya disease, familial cerebral cavernous malformations, and cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. We pride ourselves in providing cutting-edge, comprehensive care for our patients in an academically stimulating, collegial, multidisciplinary environment. Our 24-bed Neurocritical Care Unit uses sophisticated multimodal monitoring techniques to tailor individual patient treatment. Diseases frequently seen in this environment range from traumatic brain injury, intracranial hemorrhage, status epilepticus, to meningitis/encephalitis, myasthenic crisis and much more.


Applicants must be eligible for medical licensure in the State of New Mexico. Unfortunately, we are unable to sponsor J1 or H1B visas. Interviews will be held at the end of March 2020.
