Rotation Structure

General ​Pediatrics (PGY 1 and 2):

Required rotations during PGY 1 and 2 years include inpatient (wards), night float, Emergency Medicine, Urgent Care, NICU, PICU, newborn nursery, cardiology, hematology/oncology, developmental behavioral pediatrics, adolescent medicine, community pediatrics, and other outpatient clinic experiences.  During wards rotations, teams are composed of two or three interns and a senior (PGY 3) resident.  In the PGY 2 year, teams include two PGY 2 residents, allowing for a graduated level of autonomy.  Each team sees a combination of general pediatrics patients and subspecialty patients.  Overnight, the night team admits new patients and existing patients are overseen by a senior resident.  There is also elective time during both years for categorical pediatric neurology residents.

Noon conference is held daily and there are several sessions of "Resident School" throughout the year during which specific topics are covered with lectures and interactive sessions.

Neurology (PGY 3-5):

Much of the PGY 3 year is spent learning adult neurology in both the inpatient and outpatient settings.  Required rotations include inpatient (wards), night float, epilepsy, and varied subspecialty clinics.  The inpatient team comprises three PGY 3 residents and an adult neurology PGY 4 resident.

The PGY 4 and 5 years are primarily dedicated to child neurology and can be tailored to your areas of interest.  On the wards, the child neurology resident has a supervisory role over the neurology service in conjunction with the attending physician, and acts as a consultant for patients on the general pediatrics floors and ICU.

Dedicated didactic time includes Tuesday afternoons and Friday mornings.  Lectures cover topics ranging from neurophysiology to movement disorders to neurogenomics and more.
