Lewis Levy Award

The Lewis Levy Award was established in 2003 in order to support the education and training of neurology residents in their first year (PGY-2) of training. Each year, the award is given to residents who exemplify clinical excellence, personal integrity, and dedication to advancing the care of patients with neurological disease. Since 2019, the Lewis Levy Award has been given to the winners of case competition, and winning residents present their cases before the entire department at the annual Lewis Levy Clinical Grand Rounds in June.

This award is name in honor of Lewis Levy, MD, who unselfishly devoted a major portion of his professional career to supporting resident education at Yale.
