The child neurology residency program offers broad and diverse educational activities, including:
During the PGY 4 and 5 years, residents participate in a wide variety of both general Pediatrics and Adult Neurology didactic and educational learning activities.
Weekly, hour-long didactic sessions cover a wide range of child neurology clinical topics with an eye towards high yield board-specific content. Most lectures are led by child neurology faculty with some lectures covered by faculty from other applicable subspecialties. Lectures are designed to foster a collaborative learning environment for both trainees and faculty. Topics operate on a rolling “two year schedule” so that the didactics are all covered in any trainees final two years.
A traditional monthly journal club is held. The meeting is led by both residents and faculty members. Residents will review a selected, high-impact journal on a child neurology topic. The resident will first review the article and then present a short up-to-date review of the topic covered. The resident will also critique the manuscript based on evidence-based medicine and scientific method principles. A faculty member will be assigned to provide additional insight and feedback during the meeting.
