Neurology Residents

Neurology residents come from accredited medical schools across the U.S. and abroad. We select our residents based on the overall potential for success and therefore select residents on the basis of many factors rather than relying heavily on any single factor. We find the personal interviews and face to face interactions crucial in helping us, as well as prospective candidates; determine who is likely to thrive in our program. Residents receive educational allowances to defray the costs of academic endeavors, textbooks, and conferences.
