The Sports Neurology - Neurotrauma Fellowship is a two-year program that involves intensive clinical and research training in the fields of sports neurotrauma and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
The UCLA Steve Tisch BrainSPORT Program is a multidisciplinary center aimed at providing the world's best sports-concussion care for youth athletes. We have relationships with various professional and collegiate athletic programs and also close partnerships with the U.S. Military and U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, through UCLA Operation Mend. The Sports Neurology Neurotrauma Fellowship has two options: One-Year Clinical Fellowship: Fellows will receive comprehensive training in the diagnosis and treatment of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Trainees will work closely with clinic attending neurologists and neuropsychologists. The fellowship exposes trainees to pediatric sports related concussion, preseason sports neurology examination, sideline concussion management, mTBI military patients, and some more severe TBI patients. Two-year Clinical and Research Fellowship: In addition to the clinical fellowship, trainees in the two-year program will have built in research time. Under the mentorship of leading scientists, fellows will be expected to design and carryout a research project investigating neurotrauma or sports neurology.
Applicants must have completed a residency in child or adult neurology by the start of the fellowship and be eligible for a license to practice medicine in the state of California.
