Hello and welcome to the Neurology Residency Program at Rutgers, New Jersey Medical School.  The goal of our program is to prepare residents for a successful career in clinical or academic neurology, and its related subspecialties.  We strive to provide our residents with a supportive environment and the best training available. This is achieved through our broad clinical experience and a strong commitment of teaching from our faculty.  Our didactic curriculum covers all aspects of Neurology Medicine equipping our graduating residents with the knowledge required for successful board certification.

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 a patient’s life.  One who is dependable, possesses a strong work ethic, and maintains 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.
