What kind of procedures do neurologists perform, if any? How about neurointensivists?
Thank you for your reply. Why do you say NI's won't perform bronchs, EVDs, or thoracenteses as much as attendings?As a neurology resident, you should come out being pretty proficient in LPs, EMG/NCS, interpreting EEGs, basic nerve blocks ie greater occipital, intraoperative monitoring (as long as you push for it).
Neurointensivists will also get training in basic critical care procedures like placing central lines or dialysis caths, intubations, A-lines, ultrasound as well as getting experience with (though not likely expected to perform routinely as attendings): bronchs, EVDs, thoracenteses.
