The neurology residency program at AUMBC is a 4-year training program, with 1 year of training in internal medicine (preliminary internship) followed by 3 years of training in neurology. The goal of the program is to train physicians to become excellent clinical neurologists with a solid medical knowledge base, and professional attributes, so they can deliver evidence based and compassionate care to patients with neurologic disease. In addition, the program will offer exposure to research, and academic neurology.
The first-year residents will spend most of their time on the neurology inpatient and consult service, to get adequate exposure and experience in the management of neurology inpatients and a variety of neurologic consultations from the ED and the floors. In addition, the residents will rotate in neurosurgery, and psychiatry, and will have a few outpatient blocks. In house call will be on average every 4th to 6th night.
The second-year residents will have a few blocks on the wards and consult services; they will have 4 blocks of elective including 1 mandatory neuroradiology elective. They will spend three blocks on pediatric neurology and will have 2 outpatient blocks. In house call will be on average every 4th to 6th night.
The third-year residents will be responsible for overseeing the neurology ward and consult services and the education of more junior residents, students, and rotators from other services. They will spend 3 blocks as ward chief, they will have 6 blocks to learn neurophysiology, EMG, EEG, and evoked potentials and they will have 3 blocks of elective and/or outpatient time. They will take back up call from home for new PGY2s on call.Download Rotation Manual
