Neurocritical Care Fellowship

The Neurocritical Care Fellowship, ACGME and UCNS certified, aims to train excellent clinicians who will emerge as leaders in Neurocritical Care. Graduates are well-rounded Neurointensivists proficient in providing holistic care across various critical care facets, including medical and surgical intensive care. Our faculty members are actively involved in clinical/translational research, offering effective mentorship for fellows in project development and completion. Additionally, fellows are trained in cutting-edge advancements such as critical care ultrasound, automated seizure detection through EEG, brain parenchymal oxygen tension monitoring, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, artificial intelligence for large vessel occlusion stroke, lumbar drain placements, and bronchoscopies.

Detroit Medical Center, with its primary Neurointensive Care Unit at Detroit Receiving Hospital, stands as one of the leading Neurocritical Care programs in the country. Detroit Receiving Hospital is a level I trauma center, thrombectomy-capable stroke center, and regional burn center. The Neuro-intensive Care Unit (NICU) serves as a regional resource for patients with traumatic brain injury, hemorrhagic stroke, large ischemic strokes, and other life-threatening neurologic illnesses. The NICU is actively engaged in studies on various areas, including novel treatments for brain hemorrhage, traumatic brain injury, status epilepticus, and post-cardiac arrest care. Dr. Wazim Mohamed is the director of the Neurocritical Care Unit and program director for the Neurocritical Care Fellowship program, supported by Dr. Phil Ross, Dr. Arun Sherma, and Dr. Syeda Maria Muzammil.
