Program Aims

The UW Neurology Residency Program aims to:

  • Attract and train highly-qualified residents from diverse cultural backgrounds.
  • Provide exemplary acute and chronic neurological care for both local patients and those residing throughout the Wisconsin region.
  • Maintain an open, collaborative learning environment where residents develop as professionals.
  • Prepare residents for board certification and instill lifelong learning practices.
  • Prepare residents for independent clinical practice, fellowship training, or academic careers per their own preferences.

Values Statement

Faculty and residents will strive to provide the highest quality of care to every patient. It is our unwavering view that the patient comes first, and must be offered with the compassion and professionalism that we would expect for ourselves and our families.

Our program emphasizes a team approach, with close interaction among attending physicians, residents, and other health care professionals. We highly value our culture of safety, wherein anyone can feel free to ask questions, make suggestions, or raise concerns without fear of reprisal.

Finally, we value intellectual curiosity and rigor. We eschew hasty conclusions in favor of the traditional form of neurological case formulation and reject reflexive decision-making in favor of critical reasoning and the application of sound science to patient care.
