Neurology Residency Program


The Yale New Haven Children's Hospital Pediatric Neurology Residency Program is a combined five-year categorical program that includes two years of general Pediatrics training at the Yale New Haven Children's Hospital Pediatrics Residency Program, one year of adult neurology training and a two-year period of intensive training in Pediatric Neurology. On occasions, we offer an advanced position for residents who finished the required two years of general pediatrics training outside Yale. Over the three years of pediatric neurology residency, trainees will spend 12 months in general adult neurology, and at least 12 months in pediatric neurology. The remaining months are flexible and are reserved for a variety of clinical and neuroscience electives, including one month of child psychiatry.

The Program is designed to:

  1. Provide a broad educational experience in basic neuroscience to form the foundation for understanding and applying the principles of clinical neurology, and to prepare physicians for academic careers.
  2. Provide vast opportunities for progressive experience and responsibility in the care of both adult and pediatric patients with neurological conditions, and train physicians to become competent and skilled child neurologists.
  3. Provide well rounded exposure to a number of related disciplines including but not limited to neuropathology, electroencephalography, electromyography, neuroradiology, neuro-ophthalmology, neurosurgery, psychiatry, neurodevelopmental disorders and rehabilitation medicine.
  4. Provide opportunities for scholar and research activities tailored to resident interests.
