Residents are allowed 7 working days each year to attend neurology meetings. The Department of Clinical Neurosciences contributes up to $2,000 toward resident travel to meetings each year. In addition, the University of Calgary Faculty of Medicine (through the Associate Dean for Postgraduate Medical Education) provides financial assistance to residents for travel costs to a meeting when the resident is the first author of a presentation. Other funds also may be available for resident travel assistance.
Neurology residents have the option to enter a MSc or PhD program funded by the Hotchkiss Brain Institute (HBI) Resident Scientist Program or the Clinician Investigator Residency Program. The leave is normally taken at the end of the PGY3 or PGY4 year. Salary is pegged at the PGY level of the resident. Details can be found (http://hbi.ucalgary.ca/our-education/prospective-trainees)here and (http://cumming.ucalgary.ca/cip)here.
The University of Calgary Neurology Residency Training Program (NRPC) is dedicated to educate residents in neurology. Upon completion of training in neurology, a resident is expected to be an expert in the prevention, diagnosis, and management of patients with diseases of the nervous system; and to integrate all of the CanMEDS roles (medical expert, communicator, collaborator, leader, health advocate, scholar, and professional) to provide optimal, ethical, and patient centred medical care.
The program will facilitate learning through an atmosphere of collegiality and mutual respect that fosters active communication between residents and faculty.
We emphasise the pursuit of excellence in clinical and academic neurology and instil intellectual curiosity of the discipline for the academic leaders of tomorrow. We strive to create a level of excitement that will stimulate our residents to seek further education and pursue careers in academic and community neurology. Our program aims to serve both the present and future requirements of our patients, communities, and discipline.
