The Department of Neurology offers a categorical four-year residency training program in adult neurology that is accredited by the ACGME and recognized by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Eight adult neurology residents are recruited each year.
The division of pediatric neurology offers a fully-accredited, 3-year training program in child neurology and a combined 5-year program in pediatrics and pediatric neurology based at Children’s Medical Center. The program accepts two to four child neurology residents each year.
Residents train in a variety of settings including Parkland Memorial Hospital and Zale Lipshy University Hospital which are both JCAHO-certified primary stroke centers; a private university hospital system; the Dallas Veterans Administration Hospital; and in general and subspecialty outpatient clinics.
After completing their training, residents are equipped with the skills necessary for excellence in either academic or private practice careers. Our program also provides ample opportunity for academic pursuits including basic science or clinical research.
