The Department of Neurology is organized to provide medical education opportunities in clinical neurology at undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate levels of training.

A four-week clerkship is required in the third year for medical students. Clinical experience is directed toward history-taking, physical and laboratory examinations in neurological disorders, and the management of neurological disorders such as stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, coma, muscle/nerve disorders, Parkinsonism, and dementia.  For more detailed information for current students, please visit our Student Clerkship section.

The purpose of the Department of Neurology Residency Training Program is to prepare the clinician for the independent practice of neurology. It is defined as a clinical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of disease that affect the nervous system including the central (brain and spinal cord), peripheral (nerves and roots), and autonomic nervous systems, their coverings, blood supply, and effectors (muscles). For these nervous system diseases, the neurologist is the principle care physician and may render all levels of care commensurate with his or her training.  For more detailed information for applicants and current residents, please visit our Residency Section.

Fellowships are available in clinical neurophysiology (EEG, EEG/video monitoring, EMG, and evoked potentials), vascular neurology, epilepsy, movement disorders, multiple sclerosis/neurovirology neuroimmunology and neuropsychology.  For more detailed information for applicants to fellowship programs, please visit our Fellowship page.
