Neurosurgical Training in Neurotrauma and Critical Care

Neurocritical care deals with complex neurosurgical, neurological, and medical problems in critically ill surgical and non-surgical patients. Although neurosurgical residency provides extensive exposure to neurocritical care, opportunities and expertise vary among training programs and individual residents. The objective of providing these program requirements is to specify a curriculum of knowledge and clinical skills as well as training environment and administrative resources for neurosurgical residents and fellows to develop advanced proficiency in the management of critically ill neurologic and neurosurgical patients; to develop the qualifications that facilitate supervision of surgical critical care units; and to educate trainees in state-of-the-art neurosurgical critical care in the ICU setting.
