Adult Neurology Residency

Inspiring residents toward unique possibilities

Adult Neurology Residency

The Department of Neurology of Indiana University School of Medicine offers a dynamic and comprehensive three-year residency program that is ACGME-accredited. Six positions offered and filled each year.

Residents in this program are critical to the program’s curriculum and continued improvement.

This Adult Neurology Residency prepares physicians to care for patients and advance care through innovative thinking. Teaching faculty inspire residents to ask questions that ultimately improve clinical care and the educational experience at IU School of Medicine.

Resident Experience

The Adult Neurology Residency emphasizes hands-on experience in neurology subspecialties during the PGY2 year. This early exposure enables residents to gain practical experience in subspecialty areas that they may pursue further during fellowship training.

Register to Match

To register to match with an IU School of Medicine residency program, applicants must first register with the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and complete an application. Interviewing begins in September each year.

Dedicated Education

Unlike other adult residency programs in the United States, the Adult Neurology Residency at IU School of Medicine puts a heavy emphasis on didactics and other training modalities of traditional education. Each Friday residents have protected time to attend lectures on various neurology topics, practice electroencephalogram cases, and interact with neurology faculty. As physician educators cover rounds and see patients during this time, residents are encouraged to interact with their peers and learn from each other.

Curriculum

Brain Camp

Brain Camp occurs in June prior to the start of PGY 1. This event includes a lecture series in techniques of neurological examination and a lecture series in neurological emergencies. Simulation labs provide hands-on experience in performing lumbar puncture, treating status epilepticus and stroke. Time is set aside for residents to shadow the senior resident; so that on July 1, each resident is well-prepared to assume the role of neurology resident.
