Mid-Atlantic Neurocritical Care Symposium

About the Symposium

The first annual Mid-Atlantic Neurocritical Care Symposium will bring together experts from The University of Maryland/Shock Trauma Hospital, Johns Hopkins University, INOVA, Christiana Care, and beyond to discuss the basics of caring for critically ill neurological patients, as well as highlight recent innovations in the field.

The conference will occur over two days at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore.  The first day will offer a comprehensive review of the essentials of neurocritical care with a special focus on board-relevant material.  Alternatively, for those interested, a full-day Emergency Neurological Life Support course will be offered, including high-fidelity mannequin-based simulation.  Day two will transition to innovations and controversies in the field through case discussions, roundtables, debates, and two keynote addresses.

Learning Objectives

  1. Rapidly implement recommended management protocols for neurological emergencies.
  2. Describe innovative approaches to the management of neurocritical care patients.
  3. Judge the evidence in areas of controversy surrounding the management of neurocritical care patients.
