In addition, our department actively partners with the departments of Internal MedicineNeurosurgery and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

Didactics

Conferences are held every morning, Monday through Friday, for all neurology residents. During the first two months, lectures focus on neurologic examination, special diagnostic tests and emergency neurological management. The remainder of the year is a structured study of the basic neurological sciences, presented in addition to grand rounds, chairman’s clinical rounds, neurodiagnostics, journal club and a behavioral neurology case conference. We also welcome residents at our Epilepsy Monitoring Unit Conference, EMG Case Conference and Neuromuscular Case Conference.

Research

Under the guidance of a faculty mentor of your choosing, you will be required to pursue a research project that will culminate in a formal medical communication — be that a paper, abstract, platform presentation or poster presentation.
