Change in number of residents who plan to specialize in cerebrovascular disease and neurointervention in the Department of Neurology of Kyushu University Hospital

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

As an example of the Neurology Department of the University, I will report on the human resources education and changes in the number of young neurologists who want to specialize in cerebrovascular disease and neurointervention therapy in the Department of Neurology of Kyushu University. In our department, 12% (14/116) of residents planned to specialize in cerebrovascular diseases and 9% (11/116) of residents wanted to learn neurointerventional therapy. These rates are not high. However, in the past year, four out of seven residents want to specialize in cerebrovascular diseases and all want to learn neurointerventional therapy. It is possible that advances in neurointerventional therapy have influenced young neurologists. It is necessary to develop a system that encourages young neurologists to undertake these specializations in universities all over Japan.
