Program Highlights

We have 12 neurologists with a wide range of medical interests, including epilepsy, headache, neuromuscular, neurogenetics, neonatal neurology and beyond, covering all aspect of pediatric neurology. This allows for a high faculty-to-resident ratio.

Our clinical service is divided into a general neurology service, covering consults to in-patient wards and emergency departments, as well as a neurocritical care service that covers consultation to ICUs and NICUs. There are two faculty members on during the day to supervise residents.

We offer a Longitudinal Resident Clinic starting in second year, where residents are able to foster their own independence and are encouraged to follow in-patients.

Weekly pediatric neuroscience rounds, epilepsy surgery conferences and many teaching sessions are part of daily rounds, which assist in sharing and consolidating valuable knowledge.

The best part of our program is the close relationship between our faculty members and residents, plus a yearly barbecue and Christmas party. Everyone is approachable.
