Neurololgy and Racial Injustice

Statement from The Diversity and Inclusion Council

Recent events surrounding the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor have raised strong emotion and deep concern about issues of injustice, social inequities, and racism. We understand that this is a painful time particularly for the black community and to everyone who values the dignity of every human life regardless of color or creed. These events remind us that elements of injustice and racism continue to exist in our society at large and most probably around us.

Program Goals

The goal of the Neurology Residency Training Program is to prepare residents for a career in academic neurology, with well-rounded strengths in clinical care, professionalism, research, and education.
