The Stroke Fellowship at Sparrow Health System/Michigan State University provides extensive experience in management of acute stroke patients, stroke research, and outpatient stroke care. We care for more than 500 stroke admissions per year. The fellow works closely with attendings, neurology residents, interns, nurse coordinators, social workers, dieticians, physical, speech, and occupational therapists. Further training is available in neuro-intensive care, neuroimaging, TCD, carotid doppler, neurorehabilitation, clinical and basic science research. Didactic teaching is emphasized throughout the fellowship.
After the successful completion of the stroke fellowship, an option will be given to pursue advanced training for two years in neuro-intervention where the fellow will be perfecting endovascular techniques to manage a variety of vascular neurology disorders.
Please note that Sparrow has established that all new hires must be nicotine free. You will be required to sign a waiver stating that you are nicotine-free prior to being scheduled for an interview. You will not be hired if any nicotine or nicotine metabolites are in your system regardless of the source. Electronic cigarettes, nicotine gum, nicotine patches, etc., will result in positive test results.
