There are a number of highlights to the McGill Neurology residency program:
- A smaller number of residents. On average we have 4-5 residents per year, which allows residents to have the support of their peers while not feeling overwhelmed as part of a larger program.
- The interaction between clinical neurology and neuroscience. All residents complete 6 months of research. This can be in diverse areas including but not limited to basic neuroscience, clinical Neurology, neuroimaging, electrophysiology, or epidemiology. At McGill we are fortunate to have a large number of researchers in diverse fields who can become supervisors and mentors to residents.
- The opportunity to learn at multiple different training sites. This is described in greater detail in another section. It allows residents to work in different practice settings and learn from Neurologists with different experiences.
- A diverse faculty with expertise in general neurology and many sub-specialties.
