Saint Louis University’s neurology residency is a categorical program that prepares residents to be fully independent neurologists, ready for a career in academic medicine or private practice. It equips residents with the necessary clinical skills in the diagnosis and management of neurologic diseases.
A rich and varied clinical experience is provided by exposure to three busy primary inpatient services; neurocritical care service, stroke service and general neurology service as well as inpatient consult service, electrophysiology and multispecialty outpatient clinics at three teaching hospitals.
The program provides exposure to numerous subspecialty rotations and encourages residents to enroll in the clinical and basic research activities of the department.
Research, Conferences and Workshops
Residents are encouraged to enroll in departmental research activities that interest them. Research projects are shared with an attending physician who acts as the resident’s research mentor. At the end of the year, residents have the opportunity to share their research with members of the department and the University during the Department of Neurology research day and the GME Resident Poster Day.
Attendance at national conferences is encouraged. Additional monetary support (in addition to the yearly resident fund) is provided to residents whose abstracts are accepted at national meetings.
Residents are also encouraged to attend educational conferences in different subspecialties.
