of Neurology: Autonomic Disorders Fellowship
The Fellowship is directed by Dr. Horacio Kaufmann. He is Board Certified in Neurology and UCNS Board Certified in Autonomic Disorders. Dr. Kaufmann has been studying autonomic disorders for 30 years and was formerly the Director of the Autonomic Disorders Fellowship at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. He has mentored over 25 fellows, many of whom went on to create their own autonomic programs or establish their own research centers. Other faculty members in the Autonomic Disorders Program at NYU Langone include neurologists, pediatricians and autonomic research scientists.
Fellows will participate in both in-patient and out-patient activities at the Center, including autonomic testing and consult service. In addition to providing patient care, fellows will be involved in teaching medical students, neurology residents and observers at the Laboratory. The fellow will be expected to expand current research in disorders of orthostatic intolerance and orthostatic hypotension as part of the Autonomic Consortium Grant and will be expected to present their work at conferences and publish in the literature. Fellows will participate in educational activities within the Department of Neurology.
Fellows will encounter patients with Parkinson disease, multiple system atrophy, familial dysautonomia, pure autonomic failure, diabetes, auto-immune autonomic conditions, heart failure and syncope while training at the Center.
