Child Neurology

UT Southwestern offers a five-year categorical residency program, composed of two years of ACGME accredited residency training in Pediatrics at Children's Medical Center, followed by three years of pediatric neurology training.

During the two-year pediatrics training, residents fulfill the American Board of Pediatrics’ specialty pathway; this makes residents eligible to sit for the American Board of Pediatrics after completing the full five-year residency. After completing these two years, our residents start their three years of child neurology training. We also offer a three-year reserved pediatric neurology residency for candidates who have completed preliminary training in pediatrics elsewhere.

A pediatric neurology graduate is eligible to sit for board certification in Neurology with Special Qualifications in Child Neurology from the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
