Program Overview

The residency training program in Neurology at Thomas Jefferson University, a fully accredited four-year categorical training program, is designed to provide comprehensive training in all contemporary aspects of clinical neurology. The program features a progressive increase in patient care and teaching responsibilities.  

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.

Residents are required to complete a capstone scholarly project in clinical, translational, or basic science research; patient quality & safety; or medical education. Ongoing departmental research activities exist in cerebrovascular disease, epilepsy, headache, neurogenetics, neuroimmunology, dementia and peripheral nerve disease, just to name a few.

Residents receive ample training in medical education. There are opportunities to build and refine teaching skills in pre-clinical as well as clinical learning environments for medical students at Sidney Kimmel Medical College. All residents will engage in peer-to-peer teaching as part of the resident didactic curriculum, including a Grand Rounds presentation in the PGY4 year. There are Medical Teaching elective opportunities in which residents are guided by faculty through the development and delivery of educational activities for medical students.
