Stroke Fellowship

The Vascular Neurology Fellowship is a one-year ACGME accredited clinical fellowship in cerebrovascular disease and stroke. In contrast to many other programs, fellows have the unique opportunity of training at two health care systems. Hartford Hospital is a tertiary care comprehensive stroke center caring for over 1,100 stroke patients annually providing a full, immersive experience in cutting edge, state-of-the-art technology, dedicated neurocritical care, dedicated stroke teams, neurointerventional services, vascular neurosurgery, and a tremendous track for academic and scholarly activity. The University of Connecticut is a thrombectomy-capable, primary stroke center with an array of services and expertise. Both experiences enhance the learning experience and allow for a true experience of practicing in both types of settings. Our fellows consistently complete several research projects, participate in stroke simulation at our Center for Simulation and Education as well as present at regional and international conferences.

In collaboration with Yale and Brown, Hartford Hospital is part of STROKENET and a core member of the Southern New England Partnership in Stroke Research, Innovation and Treatment (SPIRIT) . Through this collaboration, fellows can work with faculty from other institutions, participate in NIH STROKENET trials, and expand their academic ambitions beyond their current institution. A separate one-year STROKENET fellowship, an NIH funded position allows for additional training in stroke research, available at Hartford Hospital as an academic track.

We look forward to having you join our program.

Headache Fellowship

The Hartford HealthCare Headache Center Fellowship in Headache and Facial Pain is a United Council for Neurological Subspecialties (UCNS) accredited program that is focused on training emerging leaders in the field of headache medicine. Our one-year program offers both clinical and research experience for those interested in pursuing advanced training in headache medicine.

Fellows will see patients with a wide-range of primary and secondary headache and craniofacial pain disorders from diverse demographic segments in an outpatient setting and become proficient in advanced procedures such as nerve blocks, trigger point injections, BOTOX® administration and sphenopalatine ganglion blocks. These patients are referred from a regional and national base and present with a broad range of interesting, unusual and refractory disorders.

Our close collaborations with experts of various specialties, including pain management, physical medicine, neuroradiology, psychiatry, neurology, neurosurgery, sleep medicine, behavioral medicine, women’s health, and neuro-ophthalmology, ensure that our trainees gain experience in a wide range of fields pertinent to the care of headache and facial pain patients.

Weekly didactic lectures and academic research time are built in to the fellow’s schedule and allow ample time for trainees to explore specific areas of interest. A combination of tutorials, independent study, mentoring, journal club, and formal lectures by Headache Center and outside faculty cover a wide range of topics required by the UCNS Headache Medicine Program Curriculum. Funding to attend national headache medicine conferences is also provided as part of our comprehensive training program.
