The Neuroanesthesia service offers advanced subspecialty clinical training while establishing a foundation for research and academic excellence. A neuroanesthesia team is responsible for the anesthetic care of patients undergoing neurosurgical procedures, including craniotomies for brain tumors, aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations, carotid endarterectomies, posterior fossa surgeries, epilepsy surgeries, complex spinal surgery, and stereotactic and interventional neurovascular techniques. Neuroanesthesia locations include multiple MRI-equipped operating rooms plus advanced neurovascular interventional suites.
Training in neuroanesthesia includes an introduction to neurosurgical intensive care issues. Along with common critical-care management situations, such as cardiorespiratory support, there are opportunities to consider the management of serious perioperative problems (e.g., those associated with spinal and cerebral head trauma, raised intracranial pressure, acute stroke or cerebral hemorrhage/cerebral vasospasmand neurologically-associated endocrinopathies).
We offer training opportunities for young researchers, and provide mentoring to design experimental protocols, analyze data and prepare publishable reports.
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
