Education and Training

The University of Illinois at Chicago offers exceptional medical education in neurology. We are dedicated to serving the needs of students, residents, fellows, faculty, alumni, and the community at large.

Residency Program

The goal of the UIC Neurology Residency Training Program is to prepare our trainees with the skills necessary for the modern age of neurology. While we stress classical training in the neurological history, examination, localization, and differential diagnosis, we also want our trainees to be facile in such areas as clinical electrophysiology, critical care neurology, neuroinformatics, neuro-epidemiology, neuroimmunology, neuroimaging, neurosonology, the psychosocial issues in neurological disease, basic principles of clinical research, and practical issues of practice within our current health care system. (Read More)

Clerkship Program

Medical students at the University of Illinois College of Medicine (Chicago campus) participate in clinical clerkships in Neurology in the M3 and M4 years. The minimum requirement is a two week rotation, but interested students can extend this experience to 4 weeks by contacting the Clerkship Coordinator. Students rotate at one of three sites, the University of Illinois Hospital, Jesse Brown VA Medical Center, or Christ Hospital. In addition to the inpatient responsibilities, students shadow Attending Physicians in the outpatient neurology clinic. During the rotation students attend lectures about the neurological exam, diagnosis, and treatment, designed specifically for medical students. Students become competent in the neurological examination, localization, and management of common neurological diseases. (Read More)
