The Stroke Clinic Selective is a 2-week rotation, during which residents will evaluate and manage stroke patients in the outpatient setting. Residents rotate through the Stroke Clinic in the CVC, PM&R Neurorehabilitation, Neurosurgery, Neurointerventional Radiology, and Bridge Clinic with Dr. Levine (for patients who need management of more complex or multiple medical comobidities). Typically, patients are seen for clinic follow-up after hospitalization for stroke or TIA, at which time the final results of their stroke workup are reviewed (usually, the last piece that was pending is their ACT monitor) and any medication adjustments if needed. Residents will also see a variety of other cerebrovascular disorders, including unruptured intracranial aneurysms, hemorrhagic strokes, vascular malformations, cerebral venous thromboses, cerebral amyloid angiopathy, familial arteriopathies, among others. These are supplemented with review of additional (and more complex) cases by the multidisciplinary neurovascular board on Wednesday mornings.

The general schedule is outlined below, with the clinic list in italics. The choice of Monday clinic (resident preference) should be discussed with the rotation director before the rotation starts. Due to alternating between attendings on Thursdays and Fridays, it is advised to page or email the scheduled attendings ahead of time to clarify which attending is seeing patients with the MA and which attending is with the resident.
