Neurology Residency, NYU Brooklyn Track

Welcome to the Neurology Residency at NYU Medical Center. We provide a nurturing and collegial place for residents to develop into well-rounded neurologists. Through expert instruction and numerous educational programs, residents will learn the science and art of Neurology with a focus on culturally competent, evidence-based, and compassionate care.

The NYU Neurology Residency Program at NYU Medical Center is an ACGME-accredited, three year advanced track centered on the clinical practice of acute neurology and community health in the ambulatory setting. Every year we accept three new residents to join our program and offer the opportunity to simultaneously match for an internship in Medicine and for the three-year Neurology training program.

Our Brooklyn Campus is a 450-bed teaching hospital and has one of the largest Federally Qualified Ambulatory Health Center networks in the country. This gives our residents exposure to a wide-spectrum of neurological diseases, with programs that include a Joint Commission designated Comprehensive Stroke Center offering a full range of stroke care including acute stroke and neuro-interventional treatment, post-stroke rehabilitation and secondary stroke prevention in the ambulatory setting. We also offer exposure to use of telemedicine in providing acute stroke care. Our Epilepsy Program provides full epilepsy care in a 10-bed inpatient epilepsy monitoring unit. Other programs include Headache, Multiple Sclerosis, Neurointensive care, Neuromuscular and Spasticity. Family Health Center at NYU Langone is a network of ambulatory clinics that offers outpatient exposure to adult general neurology, as well as subspecialty clinics.

Residents will receive a firm foundation in clinical and diagnostic neurology with an emphasis on neurophysiology, neuropathology, neuroradiology and clinical neurology through didactic and bedside teaching from experienced mentors. Rotations take place at the Brooklyn campus for the most part. However our residents will spend time at the other NYU Langone campuses for a select number of rotations.

During training residents will have the opportunity to collaborate with the Clinical Research Office on research projects with mentorship from distinguished faculty. Our residents take advantage of the many streamed lectures and opportunities available at other campuses including Patient Oriented Research Curriculum and the state of the art NYSIM Center.

The breadth and depth of the NYU Neurology Residency Program make it an excellent choice for residents looking for an exceptional education in clinical neuroscience. We hope you join us for a unique and fulfilling experience amongst the vibrancy of New York City.
