The Department of Neurology schedules a wide range of educational conferences. In addition to these departmental conferences, a large number of conferences concerning the neurosciences take place within the University of Rochester Medical Center. These include conferences in the Departments of Medicine, Neurobiology and Anatomy, Psychiatry, Ophthalmology, Radiology, Pharmacology, Genetics, and others. The Child Neurology residency program works closely with the adult Neurology program to run an outstanding line-up of teaching conferences. This collaboration enhances the learning of both groups of residents by increasing exposure to a more diverse set of neurologic topics and perspectives.
