Yearly Schedule/On Call

The goal of the program is to provide high quality comprehensive training in Clinical Neurology with a strong foundation in basic Neurosciences. The 4-year program is structured to provide progressive education in Clinical Neurosciences with increasing levels of patient care responsibilities. The Resident spends the first year in Internal Medicine to obtain a broad clinical experience in general internal medicine. The second year resident will spend the majority of time on adult inpatient services (stroke, epilepsy and general neurology). The required 1-month rotation in Psychiatry and one month of outpatient experience is also offered in the second year. The third year provides subspecialty training in neurocritical care, clinical neurophysiology (EEG-EMG), radiology, and child neurology. At the fourth year level the Resident is well prepared to provide inpatient neurology consultations to other departments. Residents are offered a 3-month elective during their training during their Third and Fourth year.
