Innovative, Flexible Program

The University of Colorado Department of Neurology and Neurohospitalist-Neurovascular Section has a long and continuous history of innovation in clinical excellence, education, and research.  Our Neurohospitalist Fellowship Program extends this legacy of innovation.   

Personally-tailored mentorship and exceptional schedule flexibility balances professional growth opportunities with core educational and clinical experiences.   Fellows are exposed to a diverse patient population at the University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Center and affiliate telehealth and telestroke sites located throughout the Mountain West.  A carefully curated didactic program promotes dynamic learning across clinical science, research methodology, medical education, and professionalism-of-neurohospitalism domains.   Wide-ranging clinical expertise and direct, mentored connection to all levels of research, education, and administrative leadership are provided by a highly-engaged Section Faculty.  The result is an exceptionally well-resourced Fellowship Program centered upon mentorship and personalized to each Fellow’s individual aspirations.  Come and experience our answer to “Why a Neurohospitalist Fellowship?”  

International and Foreign Medical Graduates are welcome and encouraged to apply.  Visa sponsorship and support is available.
