Maybe someone could help. I wanted to fulfill my 4th year core Neuro requirement by doing Neuro ICU. The chair of IM at my school said "No." His reasoning was that Neuro ICU will not teach you what you the fundamentals of regular Neurology. Is this true? I always kind of thought of Neuro ICU was a more intensive type of Neurology, just like Medical ICU is a more intensive type of internal medicine.
