We are a small but growing division with an established record of producing superbly trained clinical neurologists. Our graduates have consistently done well on the Royal College exam and have gone on to prestigious subspecialty fellowships.
The Neurology program strives to maintain an appropriate balance of service to educational activities. We have an academic half day covering clinical and basic sciences with a structured curriculum in 2-year cycles. In addition to these structured teaching sessions, we offer bedside teaching by the attendings and senior residents, neuroradiology rounds, neurophysiology rounds, stroke rounds and Neurosciences grand rounds. All academic sessions are protected time for residents. Residents spend significant time working on the Neurology service early in their residency, starting from the beginning of the first post-graduate year. Junior residents work closely with staff neurologists seeing consults and in clinic, and have their work on the Neurology ward supervised by a senior resident. Senior residents are able to take on significant responsibility for ward management, administrative work, and clinical teaching of residents and medical students. In third year, residents begin a weekly clinic under the supervision of one of the staff neurologists where patients are followed prospectively. There is flexibility in arranging electives and scheduling rotations in the later years of training. Residents are encouraged to pursue their own interests in research, clinical training, and future fellowships.
