Neurology gets fellowship training approval

The Department of Neurology recently received approval for two fellowship training programs: one in neurocritical care and the other in vascular neurology.

Each is the first in Mississippi. The new programs bring the department's fellowship offerings to four.

Uschmann_SuggDr. Hartmut Uschmann, associate professor of neurology, will serve as program director of the two-year neurocritical care fellowship, which was approved by the United Council for Neurological Subspecialties.

Dr. Rebecca Sugg, assistant professor of neurology, will direct the one-year vascular neurology program, approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

"The state is short on general neurologists and all subspecialists," Uschmann said. "Neurocritical care subspecialists are short nationwide. It's rapidly expanding as a subspecialty.

"Stroke specialists are sought after since stroke units are being created everywhere."

Fellows have yet to be selected. The new programs become effective July 1.
