Child Neurology Residency

Mandatory Educational Conferences (PGY3)

  1. Clinical Neurology Conference occurs at various times through the week. This is the heart of the clinical and scientific didactic curriculum for the residency, covering topics relevant to the main neurological subspecialties on a monthly rotation and including smaller lecture series on other relevant topics of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and clinical neurological practice.
    • Topics typically covered monthly include:
      1. Stroke Lecture Series (1st Monday at 12:00 pm)
      2. Epilepsy Lecture Series (3rd Tuesday at 12:00 pm)
      3. EEG Basics (1st Tuesday at 12:00 pm)
      4. Neuro-Ophthalmology Lecture Series (Fridays quarterly at 12:00 pm)
      5. Neuromuscular Lecture Series (2rd Thursday at 12:00 pm)
      6. Movement Disorders Lecture Series (4th Thursday at 12:00 pm)
    • Other topics covered during these conference times include Headache, Neuroimmunology, EMG Basics, Sleep, Cognitive Disorders, Neuropsychology, Neuro-Otology.
  1. Pediatric Neurology Conference occurs every Wednesday at 12:00 pm. These conferences are part of the educational curriculum for the pediatric neurology fellowship but include topics of more general interest to adult neurologists and/or general pediatricians. A selection of these lectures will be mandatory for adult neurology residents and will comprise the pediatric neurology curriculum for the adult residency; this will be indicated in the MedHub lecture schedule and in the weekly lecture reminder emails.
  2. Neuroradiology Conference is a multidisciplinary conference that occurs on the 4th Wednesday of the month in the Radiology John Juhl Conference Room. A neurology resident and a neuroradiology fellow are assigned to present cases.
  3. Grand Rounds is the weekly department-wide educational conference. Topics range widely, from basic science to translational research and clinical trials to topics of direct clinical interest. Some are devoted to case reports and clinicopathological conferences. Each resident must complete one departmental Grand Rounds presentation by the end of the PGY-4 year.
  4. Adult Neurology Journal Club occurs roughly every 1-2 months in the evening at a faculty member’s house. This is an informal gathering of residents and faculty in which one resident and a faculty member select a selection of one or more papers around an important or controversial clinical theme. The resident presents the topic and the findings, with assistance from faculty in guiding the discussion.
  5. Morning Report occurs weekly on Fridays at 8:00 am. This is a resident led teaching conference involving interactive discussion around a single case. Resident presenters are assigned dates by the chief residents at the beginning of the academic year. The child neurology resident will be assigned 2-3 presentation dates during the PGY3 year.
