The Residency Program at Weill Cornell Medicine prides itself on developing highly qualified clinical neurologists. The benefits of our comprehensive educational program are enhanced by our ability to offer an abundant and diverse patient population. Within the program, we also strive to identify, select, and cultivate physicians with special aptitudes for careers in research, teaching, leadership, and/or public service.
Our neurology residency program emphasizes a clinical approach to neurological problems based on an understanding of the pathology, physiology, biochemistry, and molecular biology of neurological dysfunction and disease. Trainees learn to diagnose accurately, treat effectively, and understand the impact of social and psychological factors on neurologic symptoms.
Our four-year program offers up 7 or 8 categorical positions each year.
