Department Adds Residency Program Slots

Feb. 3, 2022

The McGaw Neurology Residency Program will now support two additional trainees per year — raising program capacity to 10 — an expansion that comes amid tremendous departmental growth in faculty, laboratories, clinical programs and centers in recent years.

“The expansion will allow for more balanced exposure to both inpatient and outpatient Neurology practice settings, including adding outpatient and elective time during the first year of Neurology training, which will provide even earlier opportunities for trainees to explore potential career interests," said Danny Bega, MD, director of the Neurology Residency Program. "Furthermore, the added complement will allow residents to better distribute workload to optimize their learning."

Many Neurology residents continue their careers in the department as fellows and then faculty members.

"We have great faculty who are excited to be mentors and outstanding programs and clinics in which to train residents. Our residents are also poised to become future leaders in the field," said department Chair Dimitri Krainc, MD, PhD.

GME and ACGME issued their approvals of the expansion at the end of January.

The Neurology Residency Program provides world-class training to develop exceptional clinicians for academic or private-practice careers, scientists and medical educators. Visit the Neurology Residency Program page to learn more.
