Residency Program Overview

The goal of the Neurology Residency Training Program is to prepare residents for the independent practice of clinical neurology. This objective is achieved through exposure to a wide variety of clinical situations including in-patients, out-patients, adults and children, first with the close guidance of senior residents and faculty, and then, as residents demonstrate increasing competency, with lesser intensity of supervision.

Residents will enhance their knowledge of the basic neurological sciences as they apply to clinical neurology and will learn the pathological appearance and pathogenesis of neurological diseases. Residents will have the opportunity to develop skills in the performance and interpretation of electrodiagnostic procedures. They will be assisted in achieving competence not only in medical knowledge and patient care, but also in the ability to learn from their own practice, in communicating effectively with patients and professionals, in developing professional principles and attitudes, and in understanding how their practice relates to the larger context of the health care system. Residents will be able to develop special interests and abilities by selecting appropriate elective experiences in preparation for a career in clinical practice or academics. We are confident that every resident that we accept into our program will be able, with suitable application, to become a first rate clinical neurologist.
