Neurodevelopmental Disabilities / Pediatrics Residency
Indiana University School of Medicine offers a Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (NDD) Residency Program. This unique categorical program provides integrated NDD training with two years of pediatrics training. Residents who have already completed pediatrics training are eligible for advanced positions.
IU School of Medicine has a strong tradition of collaborative training in combined pediatric residencies with multiple faculty who are boarded with the American Board of Pediatrics and the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, which acts as a hub statewide for pediatric care, is one of the largest and busiest children’s hospital in the United States and is one of five teaching hospitals on the IU School of Medicine campus in Indianapolis. NDD residents benefit from a diverse patient populations as they train at these five teaching hospitals that provide both pediatric and adult care.
The training NDD residents receive in pediatrics during PGY1 and PGY2 meet all core ABP and ABPN requirements and provide an excellent foundation in inpatient, outpatient, general and specialty settings. Residents are integrated with the pediatrics intern class and have elective options such as research, global health, work at Camp Riley, and others electives based on their specific interests.
The Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Residency Program Director works closely with the Program Directors from the Pediatrics, Adult Neurology and Child Neurology Programs. Their collaborative efforts enhance the residency training experience at IU School of Medicine. Residents also have the opportunity to train with Developmental Pediatrics, Adult Neurology and Child Neurology faculty.
