Neurology Residency Educational Experience

The primary mission of our residency program is to train outstanding clinicians of the highest quality to provide neurological care to people in need. A secondary goal is to identify and nurture potential clinician-researchers and clinician-educators who will become academic physicians themselves. The neurology residency curriculum has been designed to accomplish both of those goals, reinforcing the core competencies of patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal skills and communication, professionalism, and systems-based practice.
