Welcome to the March Issue of Residents and Fellows Corner! By Kim, Jennifer Ahjin, M.D., Ph.D. Our Resident Fellow Committee and trainees-at-large have been very busy over the past few months, and we have a lot of exciting news to share. Our first article highlights an exciting new project launched by the Resident and Fellow Committee. This article is written by Marin Darsie, MD, and explains the launch of a new Neurocritical Care Pocket Guide to provide a practical diagnostic and management resource to trainees at all levels, from all backgrounds on the most common acute neurologic diseases. This guide was produced in conjunction with the Educational Products Committee and will be released in May 2017! Next, I had the chance to interview one of our trainees-at-large, Firas Abdulmajeed, MD, on his perspective as a neurocritical care fellow with internal medicine residency training. He not only shared his personal experiences but conducted an informal survey of internal medicine residents across the country on their awareness of neurocritical care as a specialty! Finally, another trainee-at-large, Lauren Koffman, DO, MS, was able to share her recent experience of going to the Society for Critical Care Medicine Conference this past January 2017 in Honolulu, Hawaii. With all the exciting trainee-oriented sessions, she shows how valuable it is for any trainee to attend SCCM and the upcoming Neurocritical Care Society Meeting Oct. 10-13 in Waikoloa, Hawaii. Our Fellows Corner section ends with an announcement detailing all the great neurocritical care associated events for trainees at the Annual American Academy of Neurology Meeting in Boston, MA April 22-28, 2017.
