The Department of Anesthesiology's Neuroanesthesiology Fellowship Program has received five-year accreditation by the International Council on Perioperative Neuroscience Training (ICPNT). The fellowship program, under the direction of Dr. Maria Bustillo, joins just 23 programs worldwide who have received ICPNT's accreditation.
Established in 2019, the ICPNT sets educational standards, promotes high quality subspecialty education in perioperative neurosciences, and ultimately aims to improve outcomes for patients with neurologic conditions in the periprocedural period.
Weill Cornell Medicine's neuroanesthesiology fellowship is a one year program that provides advanced clinical training in the subspecialty. Fellows also design and initiate research and participate in the education of residents.
The Department of Neurological Surgery at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center is ranked #3 in the nation by US News & World Report. In close collaboration, the Division of Neuroanesthesiology provides expert care for roughly 3,000 patients annually in the operating rooms and approximately 1,200 patients annually in the interventional neuroradiology suite. The neuroanesthesiology division has been at the forefront of developing anesthesia and sedation protocols for intracranial brain tumors, vascular malformations, epilepsy surgery as well as spine surgery and interventional procedures.
NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is ranked fourth in the nation and first in New York City by US News & World Report.
