The Brain Attack course is a yearly comprehensive review of the field of cerebrovascular disease. It covers epidemiology, diagnosis, acute management, secondary prevention, and rehabilitation. Our audience includes physicians and also nurses from the tri-state area as well as nationally. The course is held yearly with a series of core topics focusing on acute stroke management and is supplemented by new lectures each year to cover 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 Medicine as well as faculty from the departments of radiology, neurosurgery, emergency medicine, and rehabilitation medicine, 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.
