PGY-5/NS5: Research or In-Folded Fellowship

Residents have the option of continuing their research for a second year. In certain cases, when planned from the start, they may be able to complete the work needed towards a PhD from the Elmezzi Graduate School of Molecular Medicine (based at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research).

Residents who choose to pursue an in-folded clinical fellowship this year will train as fellows in the field of their choice, including cerebrovascular, functional, neurooncology, neurotrauma/critical care, pediatrics, spine or skull base surgery. Resources for training in these subspecialty areas currently exist at the North Shore-LIJ Health System.
