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.


Clinical Neuroscientist Training Program (CNSTP)

Every resident who matches to our program has the opportunity to enter the Clinical Neuroscientist Training Program. This is a NIH-funded R25 program, providing up to 24 months of protected research time, with at least 6 months of protected research in the PGY4 year, and the remainder completed during a post-residency research fellowship. Candidates can opt into research opportunities as early as their PGY1 year, and the formal application for the R25 program occurs early in the PGY3 year.


Clinician-Educator Track

Residents with a strong interest in careers in neurology education can choose to enter the Clinician-Educator 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 the Global Neurology 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.


Healthcare Management Track

Residents with a strong interest in careers in healthcare management can choose to enter the Healthcare Management Track at the start of their PGY-2 year. In this track, residents will have the opportunity to use elective time to participate in healthcare management projects.
