If you have completed a medicine residency and doing a neurocritical care fellowship can you do further training in neurointerventional or will programs make you go back and do a neurology residency before applying. If anyone has any input, would be appreciated. Lastly is there any way to sit for the critical care boards without doing 2 additional years of CC fellowship after neurocritical care fellowship. Hope to hear from you soon

I would double check with SVIN website. I think you can apply for neurointerventional programs after doing neurocritical care. I don't think neurology residency is required.

As for criticalcare, you can sit for cc boards if you meet their requirements. But there are only a few places that you may be able to complete those. ie., UCSF is the only one I know of.

There are currently three pathways to neurointerventional radiology (NIR):

1. Neurology residency (4 yrs) -->vascular (1yr) or neurocritical care (2yrs) fellowship --> NIR (2yrs) = 7 or 8 years

2. Neurosurgery residency (6 yrs) --> NIR (2yrs) = 8 years

3. Radiology residency (5 yrs) --> Neuroradiology fellowship (1-2 yrs) --> NIR (2 yrs) = 8 or 9 years

Refer to these articles for the established guidelines:

Therefore, one would not be eligible to train in NIR from a medicine background, despite completing a neurocritical care fellowship.
