You will develop long-term relationships with diverse patients in an outpatient care setting — where most neurological conditions are evaluated — through our highly personalized training in a general neurology clinic.
You will see and follow your own panel of patients one-half day each week, gaining invaluable experience as an integral part of a care team.
Your training takes place at one of three distinct clinic sites: a regional acute and trauma care center, a medical center serving veterans and a comprehensive urban medical facility.
Guided by our expert neurologists, you will begin to make major medical decisions as you care for patients over time.
You will be assigned new patients who have not yet been screened for probable neurological conditions.
You will initially see incoming patients, take a history, perform a physical and formulate a diagnosis (including a differential diagnosis) and treatment plan. You will then discuss your impressions and findings with the attending physician, who also will examine the patient and review the case with you.
When possible, you will continue to see your hospital patients for follow-up neurological care.
Each member of our expert professional staff works closely with just one or two residents.
From your second through fourth years, you will participate in at least 40 continuity clinics annually.
Each clinic half-day, you will see an average of two to three new patients and three to four follow-up patients. As you progress through your residency, your caseload gradually increases to the high end of this range.
Throughout your residency, you will deliver long-term care for approximately 200 to 250 patients.
You will encounter patients with a broad range of neurological conditions, including:
