Description of offer
Our program here at Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH) is uniquely qualified to provide premier education in the area of pediatric neurosurgery as it is one of the largest free-standing Children’s hospitals in the US with access to large volumes of patients, the latest technologies for advanced neurosurgical care, and multidisciplinary teams for most all diagnoses.
Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH), is a multi-disciplinary hospital with over 25 medical specialties housed within the hospital enabling efficient in-house consultation services, dedicated floor with over 20 beds for neurosurgical patients, cutting edge radiology equipment and neuroradiology team, and a pediatric critical care unit with trained neuro-critical care physicians. We have two dedicated neurosurgical operating rooms, which are fully equipped with the latest in neuro-surgical specialty equipment. We have a dedicated neurosurgical nursing team in each operating room as well as specialty trained nursing staff both inpatient and outpatient settings. Neurophysiologic diagnostic equipment, including EEG, EMG, ICP is available.
Barrow Neurological Institute at Phoenix Children’s Hospital values the importance of education especially to increasing the availability of education to developing countries. We have previously had clinical and research observors and fellows from around the world including: Latin America, Asia, Europe, and Africa. During the fellow’s visit they are able to observe the most complex neurosurgical procedures that are performed in our dedicated neurosurgery operating suites on a daily basis, participate in daily film review teaching rounds, as well as attend weekly Neurosurgery Clinical Conferences and Neurosurgery/Neurology Grand Rounds. In addition, we host a variety of Neuroscience Lectures and Conferences throughout the year that they would be able to attend, based on what is offered during the time of visit.
As well, we would be interested in developing a relationship with another children’s hospital to help support them through education, clinical cases, and physician exchanges including faculty, residents, and fellow. The details of that arrangement could be discussed and the optimal approach or approaches would be decided on collaboratively.
