Stanford Neurohospitalist Fellowship

Stanford Neurohospitalist Fellowship Overview

The Stanford Department of Neurology & Neurological Sciences is excited to announce the creation of the Stanford Neurohospitalist Fellowship program. The goal of this one-year clinical Fellowship is to gain expertise in the diagnosis and management of a wide variety of common and rare acute neurological conditions. The emphasis will be on inpatient ward and consultative neurology, with exposure to neurocritical care and vascular neurology. In addition to consolidation of clinical knowledge, Fellows will be mentored on managing clinical teams and teaching learners of multiple levels. Fellows will also be actively involved in quality improvement and patient safety projects. At the completion of the program, each Fellow will have developed the necessary clinical, research, and teaching skills to launch a successful academic career.

Candidates must be board-eligible and have a license to practice in the state of California by the start date of the fellowship.


The Neurohospitalist Fellowship position for July 2022-June 2023 remains open. To learn more about this opportunity, please contact Dr. Carl Gold, Neurohospitalist Fellowship Program Director. 

Applications for the July 2023-June 2024 Neurohospitalist Fellowship position will be accepted from September 1, 2021-December 31, 2021. To apply, please send CV, personal statement, and three letters of reference to Dr. Gold. Interviews will be held in January-February 2022.

Dr. Dujari is excited to join the Stanford Neurohospitalist team for her fellowship, to continue building skills in providing excellent care for patients with acute neurologic conditions and pursue her interests in improving and measuring quality care in neurology. She will also be serving as Chief Fellow during her fellowship, with the hopes to continue to serve as a leader and advocate for her co-fellows during training.

2019-2020 Fellow

Tarini Goyal, MD

Post-fellowship position: Assistant Professor of Neurology, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, NY

"I would recommend the Stanford Neurohospitalist Fellowship to any neurology trainee who wishes to become a well-rounded neurohospitalist, prepared for any academic position. The breadth of inpatient neurology, from “bread and butter” cases to patients with novel complications of cutting-edge cancer therapies, is represented on the wards and consult services. I trained with the freedom and mentorship to pursue multiple scholarly ideas that piqued my interest, and enjoyed learning from faculty who are experts in medical education and quality improvement. Starting my career, I feel confident that the knowledge, skills, and relationships I built at Stanford will serve as a strong foundation for years to come."
