Welcome to the Neurology Residency Program

The Department of Neurology was established by David Drachman, MD, in 1977, his spirit continues to influence the department and is embodied in our residency program that is committed to the development of the next generation of academic neurologists, who are expert clinicians, inquisitive neuroscientists and dedicated educators.  

Here are just a few unique aspects and strengths of our program:

  • Optimal clinical exposure
  • Comprehensive educational experience
  • Approachable accomplished faculty
  • World-class research opportunity
  • Collegial and friendly environment

We take great pride in our longstanding open-door policy and encourage active involvement of our residents not only in their individualized training programs, but also in initiatives for the further improvement of the residency program itself. 

We are constantly looking for ways to make our program better and believe in innovation and instituting dynamic changes to further enhance the learning environment for our residents.

The Neurology Residency Program offers eight neurology positions each year. Preliminary PGY-1 internal medicine positions are offered to those who match in neurology. We also offer one additional combined neurology and psychiatry residency position each year.
