Multidisciplinary team pilots checklists to promote high-value inpatient care

A multidisciplinary team from the Department of Neurology participated in Cohort 5 of the SHC Clinical Effectiveness and Leadership Training course (CELT). Pictured here with SHC leadership at the September 1 CELT graduation, the team included former residents and current fellows Tresa McGranahan and Rebecca Miller-Kuhlmann, H1-G1 patient care manager Elisa Nguyen, clinical nurse Karlene Mills, and case manager Judy Pettibone.

Neurohospitalist Fellowship

The Stanford Department of Neurology & Neurological Sciences is excited to announce the creation of the 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.

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.
