The rigor of the program prepares us to be independent and able to handle medical challenges. I feel comfortable in my knowledge of my chosen subspecialty, but also feel my training has prepared me for all that general and inpatient Neurology offers…The camaraderie makes the program intriguing and enjoyable at the same time. I have faculty I can approach without reservation about challenging cases and colleagues who get just as excited about unique cases.

The academic community composed of a diverse, intelligent, and collegial group of residents and attendings has been the most helpful component my training.
