Research Opportunities

Residents typically spend 5-6 months on electives, and many residents use this time to obtain training in either clinical or basic science research. This training is particularly valuable for those individuals who already know they are interested in becoming an academic neurologist, or who want more experience to decide whether that is the career they want to pursue. Our curriculum is designed to comply with the requirements of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and is in keeping with their philosophy on Flexible Training in Neurology to maximize efficient development of neurologist investigators.

There are many opportunities available for research within the Department of Neurology. In addition, there are also many faculty in other departments at Yale University that perform research relevant to clinical neuroscience, and residents are welcome to work with any of these faculty. Examples of available opportunities during residency training are found in the following links:
