Welcome to the Child Neurology Residency Program!

2021 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
  • Thoughtful and strategic scheduling allows for a significant amount of child neurology exposure in the PGY-2 and PGY-3 years
  • 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...

Stella Deng

“I have truly loved my time training at the University of Rochester! I have felt incredibly 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. 

I have enjoyed the autonomy we get in taking care of patients and the flexibility we have in creating individualized learning experiences within our curriculum. The support and mentorship I have received throughout residency has been phenomenal. We are a close-knit residency program where it feels like a family!”
