Neurology Residency Program
University of Mississippi Medical Center is an exciting place to train in neurology. The faculty is a unique blend of experienced clinicians and basic scientists with varied backgrounds and subspecialty interests. Under the guidance of Dr. Alissa Willis, the department promotes excellence in the care of neurologic patients, the education of students and resident physicians, and the clinical and basic investigation of neurologic disease.
The Department of Neurology at UMMC has a strong clinical program that serves a large and diverse patient population. Members of the department care for patients both at University Hospital and at the G.V. "Sonny" Montgomery Veterans Affairs (VA) Hospital.
Both hospitals have strong referral bases with active inpatient and outpatient services that expose trainees to a broad range of neurologic conditions. It is not unusual for residents to be the first to recognize and diagnose neurologic conditions. The Adult Neurology Residency Program is a four-year categorical program in neurology that includes a preliminary (PGY-1) year of internal medicine training. This preliminary year is supervised by both the neurology and internal medicine program directors.
We hope the outstanding educational opportunities available through the Department of Neurology at the University of Mississippi Medical Center interest you.
