Neurology Residency

Fully accredited by the ACGME, our four-year Neurology Residency Program focuses on patient care, medical knowledge, systems-based practice, and practice-based learning and improvement, entrusting residents with gradually increasing clinical responsibilities.

Diverse Clinical Exposure, Robust Mentorship Program

The preliminary year of our four-year Neurology Residency Program is devoted to internal medicine.

PGY-2 consists primarily of experiences on the various inpatient services, including general neurology, stroke, consultative, epilepsy monitoring unit, and pediatric neurology.

In PGY-2 through PGY-4, there are opportunities for rotations on subspecialty services, including clinical neurophysiology, neuropathology, neuroradiology, neuromuscular, movement disorders, behavioral neurology, research, and others for which residents may have particular interest.

Outpatient continuity clinic occurs weekly across all three years of the neurology residency. On clinical assignments, residents are the primary physician seeing several new neurology patients each day. During hospital assignments, residents supervise and teach junior neurology residents, medical residents, and medical students. Residents also evaluate and manage both routine and emergency admissions, as well as provide consultations for other services.

Throughout the program, residents receive regular didactic and clinical instruction in neurology as well as subspecialty experiences. As knowledge and skills increase during the residency, residents are given greater responsibility in both patient management and resident education.
