Residents are encouraged to participate in departmental research activities in cerebrovascular disease, epilepsy, headache, neurogenetics, neuroimmunology, dementia and peripheral nerve disease. Residents also play an important role in medical student education.
The residency training program in Neurology at Thomas Jefferson University, a fully accredited three-year training program, is designed to provide comprehensive training in all contemporary aspects of clinical neurology. Completion of an ACGME-approved post graduate year in medicine or a transitional year is a prerequisite for entering the Neurology residency. Progressive increase in patient care and teaching responsibilities are inherent in the program.
In addition to general adult clinical neurology, areas covered during training include child neurology, EEG and evoked potential, neuromuscular disorders and EMG, neuroradiology, neuro-ophthalmology and neuropathology, among others. Intensive exposure to the basic neurosciences is provided.
