This is primarily a resident-run conference with ideally three to four articles reviewed by the trainees. Faculty, residents, and students participate in the Journal Club by presenting and discussing current clinical, translational, and basic science journal articles relevant to pediatric neurology. If you would like to be included in the distribution list for Journal Club, please e-mail Sally McMillan.

Resident Weekly Educational Conference

Every Tuesday and Thursday, the residents attend conferences to review various topics in Child Neurology. In a joint effort, program leadership and the Chief Resident(s) develop a schedule for the academic year. On Mondays and Wednesdays, the residents attend conferences to review various topics in Adult and General Neurology. The lectures cover a multitude of topics, including preparation for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Board Examination and the annual RITE Exam, as well as various other topics related to the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of neurological conditions in Child Neurology aimed at increasing the residents’ fund of knowledge.
