The Division of Neurology provides the only tertiary level of care for children with neurological disorders in British Columbia.
We offer state-of-the-art care for common and rare diseases of the nervous system, including epilepsy, stroke, brain tumors, newborn brain injury, and muscle diseases.
The five-year Pediatric Neurology Residency Training Program is committed to providing an excellent educational experience within the guidelines of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
There is close collaboration between the pediatric and adult neurology training programs at UBC and all pediatric trainees must include six months of training in adult neurology in their overall post-graduate education. Pediatric neurological training provided by members of the Division includes experience in general neurology inpatient consultations, Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit, Special Care Nursery and Psychiatry, as well as outpatient experience in general and subspecialty pediatric neurology. In addition, there is also training in basic neurosciences (neuropathology, neuroradiology, neuroanatomy) and electrophysiology (EEG and EMG).
All trainees are also expected to become actively involved in research projects that will result in presentations at national and international conferences and publications in peer-reviewed journals. We offer subspecialty training programs and fellowships in epilepsy, neuromuscular, neuro-oncology, and neonatal neurology.
