“I feel very fortunate to have been able to train with the outstanding pediatric neurologists and staff at the University of Rochester. This is a close-knit program that works together to ensure the success, professional development, and well-being of its residents. Our program director, Dr. Stone, is not only a phenomenal educator and person, but also works diligently to ensure residents have a tailored learning experience throughout their residency. He not only listens to the residents but quickly implements change based on resident feedback – just another strength of our program.
The adult and child neurology residency programs at the University of Rochester are known for their outstanding teaching but what truly stands out to me, is the level of autonomy and continuity of care residents have with their patients. We are the primary providers for our patients but are well supported by faculty when needed. This has been instrumental in my learning of the many complex diseases of pediatric neurology.
As a minority in medicine, I am proud to see the dedication our program director has put forth to anti-racist initiatives by integrating lectures of health disparities, inequities and racism into the curriculum, but also pledging to support the Association of Minority Residents and Fellows here at Rochester.
Overall, I couldn’t have matched at a better residency program!”
