Academic Training

Academically, fellows are required to identify a career mentor early in their first year of training. Our fellows present at regular journal clubs and will have the opportunity to participate in one of the 20-30+ ongoing research projects/clinical trials in our division at any given time, or contribute to one of the 20-40+ publications our group publishes yearly. Fellows commonly participate in peer review (articles, grants, etc. – mentored by the faculty) or develop a project of their own. Please see our developing Guardians of the Neuroaxis Lab website for more information on our research endeavors. Formal rigorous research training is available through various programs, interest in which should be discussed early to determine project feasibility during fellowship.

Our fellows also regularly participate in educational development opportunities such as simulation proctor training, curriculum development, or giving lectures in the departments of neurology, neurosurgery, critical care, emergency medicine, internal medicine, etc. Fellows can also take advantage and enroll in the prestigious University of Florida Master of Science in Epidemiology (MSE) program, during their training.

The University of Florida is a large, well-established, flagship university for the 3rd most populous state in the US. UF provides our trainees ample opportunities for clinical, career, and research development with the abundant and diverse resources available.
