The Neurology residency training program at Tulane University School of Medicine provides full training in clinical neurology. The objective is to educate residents by exposing them to an excellent clinical and research environment, which will allow them to make well-informed decisions about their ultimate career choice and allow for excellent patient care. Resident physicians completing this three-year program will be eligible for board certification from the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
Our fully accredited three year program accepts two residents per year. Our three year training includes inpatient experience, outpatient subspecialty and continuity of care clinics, consultation rotations, elective rotations, and a variety of teaching lectures and conferences. Incorporated into the residency is a one year internship in internal medicine. Residents who have completed one year of appropriate post-graduate training in internal medicine may begin three years of neurology residency directly.
In addition to emphasizing education, neurology faculty are active in clinical care and clinical and basic research. As a result of this exposure our graduates have had posters or presentations at national meetings and also publications in prestigious journals. Graduates of the program are prepared for both private clinical practice and academic neurology careers.
Current Residents find that our neurology staff values teaching as an exchange of ideas, and as an activity that promotes interaction and inquiry among faculty and residents. Residents are treated as junior colleagues. Formal and informal interaction between faculty and residents is encouraged.
