Clinical Experience with Specialty ExpertsThe department has more than 20 pediatric neurology faculty physicians—the largest group of child neurologists in the state of Indiana—who train residents in various neurologic specialties, including epilepsy, headache, neurogenetics (neurofibromatosis), neuromuscular disorders, neonatal neurology, spasticity and cerebral palsy, stroke and tuberosis sclerosis. Time is also spent training with adult neurology faculty in the academic health center at IU Health. The partnership between adult and child neurology allows for intensive educational experiences as well as unique opportunities, such as a two-month neuroanatomy rotation the beginning of the second year. The program focuses on clinical training with a mixture of didactics and extensive clinical experience. Residents actively participate in research and are involved in the education initiatives of the department. Over the past two decades, the Child Neurology Residency program has exponentially grown. They now house several multi-disciplinary clinical programs and are fully integrated into institution-wide programs such as Neuro NICU and formal educational programs of numerous other departments.
