Brain Attack and Cerebrovascular Disease Update 2019

You are here

The Brain Attack course is a yearly comprehensive review of the field of cerebrovascular diseases and stroke. It covers epidemiology, diagnosis, acute management, secondary prevention, and rehabilitation for ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. The intended audience is physicians (neurologists and other specialists), advance practitioners (NP's and PA's) and nurses from the tri-state area as well as nationally. The course is given yearly with a series of core topics focusing on acute stroke management, secondary prevention, and is supplemented by lectures each year covering the latest advances in the field.

The faculty for the course includes stroke specialists from the Columbia University Vagelos College of Physician and Surgeons and Weill Cornell Medical College as well as faculty from the departments of radiology, neurosurgery, emergency medicine, rehabilitation medicine, nursing, and expert guest faculty from outside our institution. Our multidisciplinary team provides a broad-spectrum curriculum and a practical approach to the cerebrovascular field. The Brain Attack course fulfills the 8-hour annual CME/CH requirement set by the State of New York for Primary Stroke Center designation and is an important vehicle for practitioners to obtain this vital education.
