The first two years of the 5-year categorical child neurology program at NYU Langone Health consist of pediatric training integrated with the NYU Langone Pediatric Residency Program followed by three years of neurology training. Rotations listed below occur during the three years of child neurology training.

First Year
  • Adult neurology rotations take place at multiple locations including NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital, Bellevue Hospital Center, the VA Medical Center, NYU Langone’s Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, and NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital.
  • Rotations include both inpatient consult and ward adult neurology, inpatient and outpatient adult epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology, a comprehensive adult stroke service, and adult neurologic ICU.
  • The first year consists of 6 months of inpatient adult neurology, 3 months of outpatient clinical adult neurology, and 3 months of elective adult neurology including neuroradiology, neuropathology, and neurophysiology.
Second and Third Years
  • Approximately 6 months of each year is spent on the child neurology clinical services (consult service, clinic, or epilepsy monitoring unit) at either NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital or the adjacent Bellevue Hospital Center.
  • In addition to the clinical services at NYU Langone and Bellevue, residents may also rotate at NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation, NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital, NYU Langone’s Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, the NYU Langone Child Study Center, and the Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone.
  • The other 6 months of service each year are divided between selective elective child neurology rotations including neuroradiology, neuropathology, learning disorders, neurogenetics, neuromuscular disorders, neuro-ophthalmology, epilepsy, clinical neurophysiology, neurorehabilitation, neuro-oncology, and child psychiatry.
  • Throughout training residents are encouraged to participate in both research and quality improvement initiatives. There is ample time for research and special projects.
