Welcome to the Adult Neurology Residency Program at Rutgers, New Jersey Medical School. The goal of our program is to prepare residents for a successful and fulfilling career in clinical or academic neurology, and its related subspecialties. We strive to provide our residents with a supportive environment and excellent clinical, research, and didactic training. This is achieved through our faculty's extensive clinical experience and strong commitment to teaching future neurologists. Our didactic curriculum covers all aspects of Neurology Medicine equipping our graduating residents with the knowledge and experience required for success in the field.

Success for both the program and the resident is a balance between a resident’s needs, ability, and attitude as well as the program’s ability to help the resident develop into a competent and caring neurologist. Our Department seeks motivated residents with a desire to make a positive impact on patient’s lives. We seek residents who will be dependable, possess a strong work ethic, and maintain a positive and professional attitude.

We hope you consider our residency program as you prepare for your next phase of training in your career. We sincerely thank you for your interest in our program and encourage you to contact us if you have additional questions not covered here on our website.
