Child Neurology Continuity Clinic
The Child Neurology continuity clinic aims to provide the best possible patient care while delivering high quality resident education in a general child neurology clinic setting. Continuity of patient care and resident autonomy are high priorities, and to achieve these goals, residents work with a consistent faculty member and serve as the primary neurologist and decision-maker for their patients. In addition, the residents are encouraged to start their weekly child neurology continuity clinic in their second year of Pediatrics, thus allowing for 4 years of clinic exposure.
