Education and Training
UT Southwestern is the major tertiary referral center for neurological disorders in the region making it an ideal training ground for residents and fellows. The Department of Neurology and Neurotherapeutics is committed to providing a dynamic and progressive environment for our residents and fellows and offers the only neurology residency program in the region.
Nearly all of UT Southwestern's graduating neurology residents pursue additional training. Our graduates are highly successful in obtaining competitive fellowships at UT Southwestern and other institutions.
Fellows receive training in many clinical subspecialties. There are also laboratory-based research fellowships for those pursuing clinician-scientist careers. In 2010, the department added two new fellowship programs in movement disorders and neuro-oncology. In 2012, we added additional fellowships in headache and sleep medicine.
