The Neurology Department is dedicated to providing excellent education for medical students, residents, fellows and the community.
Our medical student education begins with teaching neurologic examination skills to first-and-second year medical students through basic and advanced neurology labs. In the MS2 year, our department oversees the Mind, Brain, and Behavior Module, a 9-week course that integrates basic neuroscience, neurology and psychiatry. Our Neurology clerkship is required for all medical students. This 4-week rotation allows students to experience the spectrum of neurology diseases in the clinic, inpatient and ICU settings. We provide students with a variety of MS4 elective options, including inpatient and outpatient selectives, special topic electives, and the David Sherman longitudinal education elective.
The mission of the Neurology Residency Training Program is to create well-rounded neurologists who can excel in any clinical or practice setting whether in academics or private practice. To assist in resident development, we offer a variety of optional training tracts that residents may choose based on their interests.
We provide fellowship training options in Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry, Clinical Neurophysiology, Epilepsy, Movement Disorders, Neuroimmunology, Neuromuscular Disorders, Neuropsychology, and Vascular Disorders.
We also help support the Neurocritical Care and CNS Endovascular fellowship, run by our Neurosurgery Department.
