Please complete an application through the AAMC Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). The application requires a personal statement, medical school transcript, USMLE scores for Step 1 and 2 exams, three letters of reference, and the Dean's letter. It is preferred to have Step 2 completed, with scores available for review, by February 1. Residency positions are selected through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP).
Our program has expanded in 2023 and we now offer 9 categorical positions each year. Our categorical residency positions include one year of Internal Medicine at NYP/Weill Cornell, followed by three years of neurology, though some neurology and psychiatry rotation time is built into the PGY1 year. A separate application to the NRMP for the internal medicine PGY1 year is not required for our program.
Annually there is a rising PGY4 resident who is appointed to be the McGraw Fellow in Neurology Research where extra and potentially conglomerated research time is arranged. One Research Track position every four years is supported by the Weill Cornell Medicine Feil Family Brain & Mind Research Institute.
Unexpected program vacancies are listed through the AAMC "Find a Resident" Website. If you have any questions, please review the Frequently Asked Questions section. Also, please feel free to contact us directly.
NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital only sponsors J-1 visas through ECFMG. NYPH does not sponsor H-1B visas.
For international medical school graduates, ECFMG certification is required.

Pediatric Neurology Residency
Weill Cornell Medicine offers a Pediatric Neurology Residency. Residents follow the first-year adult neurology program, but in subsequent years receive instruction specific to their area of specialization. This includes attendance at a weekly pediatric neuroradiology conference, Grand Rounds, the pediatric epilepsy clinic, the muscular dystrophy clinic, and the general pediatric neurology clinic.
Residents make daily ward rounds when on service and may see patients with the division chief or other members of the Weill Cornell faculty practice. Six months of the two-year training are elective, and may be spent developing skills in special areas of clinical or basic neuroscience with the approval of the Director.
This program requires two years of pediatric training prior to acceptance.
