The program accepts two to four child neurology residents each year. The division of child neurology also offers a fully accredited 4-year program in neurodevelopmental neurology, and a combined six-year program in pediatrics and neurodevelopmental disabilities.

The residency program enhanced its teaching programs in 2010 with a new web-based curriculum and introduced new fellowships. Read more about the latest developments in the neurology department.

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.
