The one year Stroke Prevention fellowship is directed by Dr. Anjail Sharrief. The fellowship program focuses on giving physicians exposure and training in primary and secondary stroke prevention through risk factor management and stroke complication management. Fellows will be trained to provide patient-care and comprehensive preventive care.
The stroke prevention fellowship is designed to give physicians who have completed neurology, internal medicine, or family medicine specialized and multidisciplinary training in aspects of primary, secondary, and tertiary stroke prevention. The fellowship will focus on management of important stroke risk factors including hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia, and obstructive sleep apnea as well as evaluation and management of depression, cognitive impairment, and other stroke complications. The fellowship faculty will include vascular neurologists, cardiologist, neuropsychologists, geriatricians, and other experts from other disciplines important to the care of stroke patients.
UTHealth is part of the Texas Medical Center
which is the largest medical complex in the world. We partner with Memorial Hermann Hospital, the only joint commission certified comprehensive stroke center and which has extensive clinical resources.
The stroke service is a standalone service that cares for all stroke patients in the hospital (average daily census 15-20, average daily admissions 3-4), staffed at all times by one attending, one vascular neurology resident, two or three neurology residents, and one family practice resident on a rotating basis.
Strong emphasis on patient care, research, and team structure.
To apply for the fellowship, the applicant must be eligible for and possess a Texas Medical License or Physician in Training Permit on the start date of the fellowship. ;Applicants must have successfully completed an ACGME-accredited program in neurology, child neurology, neurodevelopment disabilities or a similar program accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and have successfully passed USMLE Step 3.
Fellowship applicants will submit a CV, letter of interest, and a letter of recommendation for participation in fellowship. There will be an in person interview with the fellowship program director and faculty. Fellows will be selected after application review by program director and faculty.
