UCSD Vascular Neurology Fellowship



Welcome to the UCSD Vascular Neurology Fellowship Program

The University of California, San Diego Department of Neurology and the UCSD Stroke Center offer a comprehensive, ACGME-accredited, 1-year fellowship in Vascular Neurology.  Entrance into the program requires successful  completion of an accredited neurology residency program.

The fellowship is designed to provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art clinical and research training and a fully competitive academic background. We strive to achieve a balance between outstanding clinical training and research opportunities and mentorship in a collaborative environment.

Fellows receive intensive clinical research training in ischemic and hemorrhagic cerebrovascular disease. Key components of our training include:

1. Tele-neurology
2. Clinical trial implementation
3. Transcranial Doppler training
4. Stroke Center administration.

Our fellows are an essential part of the division and our faculty is categorically committed to training the academic leaders of tomorrow. These UCSD-trained thought leaders in stroke will play an essential role in bringing new ideas, energy, and perspective to a specialty whose importance will only increase as the population ages.

We greatly value our fellows as important contributors to our highly ranked Comprehensive Stroke Center. Our graduates remain our lifelong colleagues and we are very proud of their accomplishments in clinical care, research, and education during fellowship and into their careers. 

As the Program Director, I hope that the information provides you with an overview of our training program, details about our current curriculum and objectives for our fellows, and an appreciation of the many unique opportunities here.

If you have any questions about our program, please feel free to contact me.
