One-hour conferences are held four days a week for our residents. A rotating schedule of multispecialty conferences includes basic neurosciences, clinical electrophysiology, child neurology, stroke, epilepsy, neuropathology, neuromuscular disorders, neuro-ophthalmology, neurocritical care, neuro-rehabilitation, neuropsychology, multiple sclerosis, sleep medicine and journal club.
This lecture series is designed to cover the important subjects of clinical and basic neurosciences over an 18-month period. Thus, residents have lectures on individual subjects twice during their three-year residency. The success of our residents on the annual Residents In-service Training Examination is in part a testimony to the effectiveness of this program.

Research and Scholarly Activity
We offer many opportunities for clinical and basic research within the department and Saint Louis University, and most residents publish several articles and abstracts during their training.
Following graduation, about 75 percent of our residents pursue fellowship training, then enter academic or private practice.
Neurology Grand Rounds are held in Schwitalla Hall, Lecture Hall 1 on Thursdays from 8-9 a.m.
All other lectures are held in room 024 in Monteleone Hall. Lectures start promptly at 11:45 a.m. and end no later than 12:40 p.m. unless otherwise noted, even if the lecture unavoidably begins late.
