Education: You Can Teach!

The NYU Neurology Residency provides ample opportunity to teach and to learn how to teach.

Examples include:

  • Residents as Teachers lectures
  • Resident didactic lectures
  • Simulation Center training programs (e.g. mock stroke codes, lumbar puncture, neuro-critical care emergencies)
  • Presentations at the Patient-Oriented Research Curriculum
  • Medical student clinical rotation teaching
  • Nurse, Nurse Practitioner education
  • Patient Safety and Quality Improvement initiatives
  • Medical student structured didactic presentations and group session leader
  • Curriculum design
  • Continuing Medical Education lectures and simulation center sessions

Residents that wish to have a particular focus on education during residency training may also join the Education Track within the residency.  This track provides additional time and opportunities to provide education to medical students under faculty guidance, and to participate in the refinement of the medical student and residency didactic curriculums, also with faculty guidance.
