Education & Training
Welcome to the Department of Neurology Education and Training homepage. Our department has a long tradition of excellence in neurologic education of medical students, residents, fellows and community physicians. The Department of Neurology runs the 2nd year medical student Mind, Brain and Behavior course, which is considered a benchmark basic science course not only in Rochester but also nationally. The neurology clerkship remains the highest rated clinical clerkship in the medical school. The adult and child neurology residency programs are considered among the most competitive neurology training programs nationally. Our fellowship programs in clinical neurophysiology, neuromuscular medicine, vascular neurology, sleep medicine and neuro-oncology are all ACGME or UCNS accredited and train future leaders in their respective fields. The success of these teaching programs is due, in a large part, to the dedication of our faculty and residents, who are all committed to teaching excellence. In fact, our faculty and residents win a disproportionate share of medical student teaching awards annually in recognition of their teaching efforts.
