Groundbreaking Advancements Begin Here

The Neurology Residency Program motivates and empowers future leaders to champion neurologic patient care, scientific investigation and medical education.

Where Leaders in Neurology Learn

Train in a residency program that’s a frontrunner in research, innovation and the advancement of neuroscience. Our alumni have gone on to hold chief and chair positions of neurology departments at notable institutions including Harvard, Vanderbilt, Massachusetts General Hospital and the Medical College of Wisconsin. 

While textbooks offer valuable knowledge, residents truly thrive when they gain hands-on experience dealing with the complexities of neurology, by caring for people affected by conditions like multiple sclerosis, neuromuscular diseases, epilepsy and more. 

Our clinical training includes inpatient services, consultation services, ICU and outpatient services, an active schedule of teaching conferences, educational discretionary and travel funds.
