Welcome to the Child Neurology Residency Program!

2020 Child Neurology ResidentsThank you for your interest in our Child Neurology residency-training program at Golisano Children’s Hospital at the University of Rochester Medical Center. We hope you have the opportunity to visit us virtually and learn about our unique program. We combine a highly supportive, friendly, family-style atmosphere with a large and diverse patient population drawn from a population of approximately 5 million individuals in Upstate and Western New York, Northern Pennsylvania and beyond.

The department currently has about 140 faculty, and the child neurology division includes 15 primary faculty members and 10 associated faculty with diverse sub-specialty interests. Our faculty are incredibly down-to-earth, supportive, and are terrific teachers. We prize active learning, autonomy, and flexibility as cornerstones to quality graduate medical education.

Key Strengths

  • Large population served provides a high volume of diverse patients
  • Strong collaboration with adult neurology residency strengthens both programs and provides added peer supports
  • Focus on training residents to be great teachers
  • Commitment to autonomy and flexibility provides the best learning experience for each resident’s unique needs

What Our Residents Say...

Emily Walsh, MD

"I chose the University of Rochester because I was drawn to the program’s emphasis on resident education, the nationally recognized faculty, and the well-rounded residents.

"We are lucky to have a program director and group of faculty who are not only outstanding educators but also go above and beyond to support the professional development and overall well-being of the residents. The program offers a variety of different educational opportunities in a friendly and supportive setting. The close-knit feeling of the Child Neurology department makes it feel like a family."
