Neurology

Welcome to the Section of Pediatric Neurology.  All levels of learners rotate through our service including medical students, pediatric and adult neurology residents, general pediatrics residents, and subspecialty fellows. Our breadth of clinical services provide educational opportunities in inpatient and emergency consultations, neurocritical care (pediatric and neonatal), brain injury, epilepsy, developmental disorders, stroke, neurodegenerative conditions, cerebral palsy, headache, movement disorders, sleep medicine, and neuromuscular diseases. 

Residents from a number of programs other than pediatric neurology rotate through our service. Requirements are program-specific. A mixture of inpatient and outpatient neurology exposure is provided. Residents also join the pediatric neurology subspecialty call schedule during their rotation.
