  • Neurology - Program Info

    The Einstein Medical Center Neurology Residency Program is an ACGME accredited program that accepts three qualified residents per year (PGY-2 through PGY-4) for a total complement of nine (9) residents. Neurology residents will receive clinical training in an excellent neuroscience environment which includes experiences in neurosurgery, interventional and diagnostic neuroradiology and psychiatry.  Our program is characterized by close clinical mentoring from experienced faculty supplemented by considerable attention to didactic instruction in neuroscience and pathophysiology which are essential for interpreting neurological symptoms, signs and diagnostic tests. 

    The neurology residency program can be linked to the Einstein Medical Center Preliminary Medicine Residency Program offered through the Department of Internal Medicine thereby offering applicants all four years of required training experience within Einstein Healthcare Network facilities and programs.
