Rotation Schedule by Year
At least one year of training in an ACGME approved PGY-1 internship year is required before entering the Yale Neurology Residency Program. 10 preliminary positions in the Yale Department of Medicine are reserved for neurology residents, ensuring that applicants who want to spend all 4 years of residency at Yale can do so.
Residents who opt to complete their preliminary year at Yale will have the additional advantage of spending 6 weeks rotating on neurology services (4 weeks on the inpatient stroke service, and 2 weeks in the neurosciences ICU) ,with no on-call or weekend responsibilities during these rotations.
Although the vast majority residents do the PGY-1 year in a Yale program, training also may be done at any other ACGME approved institution/program.
