Letter from the Program Director
Welcome and thank you for your interest in our residency training program in the Department of Neurology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. The chairman, faculty, staff and we are uniformly committed to excellence in education, research and patient care.
Neurology at Jefferson has a long and esteemed history. Founded in 1824, Jefferson is proud to be the first division of Neurology established in the United States. The Department provides a broad educational approach that promotes clinical and research strengths in many subspecialty areas. In the past 12 years, the Department has experienced unprecedented growth, resulting in enhanced education opportunities for residents and fellows. Jefferson is proud of its Centers of Excellence in Epilepsy, Headache, Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Dementia with Lewy Bodies and ALS.
Residents receive a thorough experience in inpatient and outpatient Neurology during their residency training. We are fortunate to have subspecialty exposure to all sub-specialties in neurology. Research opportunities, both clinical and basic science, are tailored to the individual resident and enhanced by ongoing relationships with faculty mentors.
Jefferson graduates become expert clinicians with a strong foundation in research. They become life-long participants in the tradition of excellence that Jefferson promotes.
We look forward to seeing you.
Jeffrey B. Ratliff, MD
