Residency Program

3 doctors smiling

The University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago offers an ACGME accredited 4-year neurology residency training program that accepts 6 residents per year. Our educational mission is to develop a strong clinical and academic foundation for our residents while preparing them for the next step in their careers. Through our diverse training sites (the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System- a tertiary care urban hospital, and the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center) we provide a wide range of clinical, academic, and research opportunities for our residents to not only develop a strong foundation in general neurology but to gain vital exposure to the neurologic subspecialties. We are committed to continually evolving, and the incorporation of resident feedback is a fundamental aspect of the process. Above all, our program prioritizes the resident educational experience as a key component of the departmental goal of providing the highest quality of care to our patients and community.

The UIC Neurology department prides itself on its dedication not only to excellent patient care but also to education and research. Our faculty have great interest, passion, and expertise in education. Many of us meet with our residents regularly to track and guide their educational endeavors as well as to readily address any concerns. Our residents benefit from a robust daily noon lecture series including didactics, board reviews, and journal clubs. They also learn from regular neuropathology discussions and weekly Neuroradiology conferences led by our UIC neuroradiologists.

Our residents get clinical experience at our university hospital and at the Jesse Brown Veterans Affairs Hospital. At the UIC hospital, our trainees serve a diverse patient population coming from throughout Illinois and neighboring states. Coupled with the nurturing enthusiasm of our faculty, this creates an excellent training environment. At the JBVA the residents participate in the care of a unique patient population while working with a separate group of dedicated faculty who provide an outstanding education. We are proud that our faculty and residents reflect the diversity of Chicago’s population.
