Dr. Jagolino is a national leader in education and training of neurology residents and stroke fellows in telemedicine. Her research and publications has raised international awareness on the need for formal training in telemedicine as a novel health care delivery model for neurologists to provide remote healthcare to patients with stroke and other neurological disorders. She has created and oversees telemedicine training rotations for our stroke fellows and neurology residents at UTHealth. Her most cited paper in Neurology calls for educational standards in telestroke.

Training in Neurology: Adoption of resident teleneurology training in the wake of COVID-19

The coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic has changed the way we engage patient care, with a move toward telemedicine-based health care encounters.

Exposure to telemedicine in neurology training programs is scarce despite previous calls to expand teleneurology education. Programs that provide a teleneurology curriculum have demonstrated increased proficiency, accuracy, and post-training utilization among their trainees. With the current changes in health care, broad incorporation of teleneurology education in resident and fellow training after this pandemic dissipates will only serve to improve trainee preparedness for independent practice.
