A Century of Cutting-Edge Neurological Training

Lead the next generation of Neurology innovators and physicians with a spectrum of educational opportunities and a 100+ history of excellence.

Where Opportunities Abound

The U-M Medical School Department of Neurology is a hub for academic and clinical excellence, wellness-minded practices, and a long tradition of leading the Neurology field. Explore the opportunities we provide for education and training across a spectrum of learners.

Medical Student Programs

The neurology clerkship program is a required four-week experience in the second year of medical school. The goal is to teach students the principles and skills underlying the recognition and management of neurological diseases that a general medical practitioner is most likely to encounter in practice.


Each year we welcome six residents to join our residency program. At the University of Michigan, we share a passion for teaching and mentorship and a commitment to diversity. This experience at the University of Michigan will prepare you to be an educator and a leader in our healthcare community.

Fellowship Programs

We offer post-residency clinical training in nine major subspecialty areas. Our epilepsy, neuromuscular disease, sleep medicine, and stroke fellowships are ACGME-accredited, and headache, neuro-oncology, and neurocritical care fellowships are UCNS-accredited.

Research Training Opportunities

Supported by training grants from the NIH, our research training programs provide additional training for a career in clinical or basic research following their residency. Our programs provide the necessary infrastructure and formal training to promote your success.
