Residency Tracks

We have established several residency tracks to provide residents the opportunity to develop their interests in research, medical education and global health early in their careers.

Yale Investigative Neurology Program (YINP)

This is a unique training opportunity through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). We offer up to 2 positions per year, to rare candidates who have both extensive research experience and a clear vision for a career in research. Residents in this program will be provided additional protected time for research, and an additional 12 months of funded research time in a PGY-5 year if desired. To learn more about this program, clinic here.

Clinical Neuroscientist Training Program (CNSTP)

Residents who have not matched into the YINP will have the opportunity to enter this program, which is an NIH-funded R25 program providing up to 24 months of protected research time, with at least 6 months of protected research in the PGY-4 year and the remainder completed during a post-residency research fellowship. Candidates are selected on a competitive basis at the beginning of the PGY-3 year. For more information, click here.

Clinician-Educator Track

Residents with a strong interest in careers in neurology education can choose to enter this track at the start of their PGY-3 year. In this track, residents will have the opportunity to use elective time for medical education training, education research and/or the development of educational tools or programs.

Global Neurology Track 

Residents with a strong interest in careers in global health and neurology can choose to enter this track at the start of their PGY-3 year. In this track, residents will have the opportunity to use elective time for travel abroad and global neurology research. To find out more, click here.
