Fellows receive focused training in all aspects of ischemic and hemorrhagic cerebrovascular disease, including acute and longitudinal stroke management, stroke prevention, stroke rehabilitation, neurosonography, neurovascular critical care, multi-modality stroke imaging, and interventional neuroradiology. Fellows will participate in structured clinical trials and will have the opportunity to engage in ongoing local investigator-driven clinical research.

UF Health is the only Joint Commission-certified Comprehensive Stroke Center in north-central Florida, with a large referral base spanning over 13 counties. Fellowship clinical rotations are located in the Neuromedicine Tower that opened in December 2017, with 48 neuro-intensive care beds, a dedicated neuromedicine floor, stroke outpatient clinics, two hybrid interventional operating rooms, a neurodiagnosticsuite, and advanced neuroradiology.
