Child Neurology Residency


Letter From the Child Neurology Residency Director

Adam Wallace, M.D.Welcome to the University of Wisconsin’s Department of Neurology and the Division of Pediatric Neurology.

The Pediatric Neurology Residency Program is fully ACGME accredited with a current 3 year cycle. The entire training program is based at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics  and the American Family Children’s Hospital.  Attached to the Medical Center are state of the art facilities which include the Health Sciences Learning Center and the Ebling Library at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.

The Pediatric Neurology Division at the Department of Neurology works very closely with the Department of Pediatrics and provides neurological care for children in the Neurology outpatient clinics and at the American Family Children’s Hospital. This hospital is a very busy regional tertiary referral center which provides experience in a wide range of neurological conditions. Built in 2007 and expanced in 2014, the facilities are comfortable and modern. Inpatient units consistently run near capacity and additional intensive care units are currently being built. Pediatric neurology faculty participates in multidisciplinary clinics including Neurooncology, Headache, Metabolic Genetics, Brain Care, and Neuromuscular. A very active ketogenic diet program and a pediatric epilepsy monitoring unit provide excellent opportunities to gain experience in the management of complex epilepsy patients.

The pediatric neurology faculty is consistently rated highly for teaching, and neurology residency graduates have an exceptionally high rate of passing their board exams on their first try with very high scores.

The University of Wisconsin, one of the top Universities in the country, offers competitive compensation and benefits, and the city of Madison is consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in the US, with natural beauty and limitless recreational opportunities. Interested candidates should apply through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). Your training with us will be a very enjoyable and rewarding experience,

Please contact us at residency@neurology.wisc.edu for additional questions.

Our program offers a categorical position (1779185C0) guaranteeing a full 5-year course of training.  As such, the Department of Pediatrics provides the first two years of preliminary training in accordance with ABPN requirements. For questions regarding the preliminary pediatric training, please contact the Pediatric Residency Coordinator, Kari Bruckner.
