Residency in Neurology at North Shore University Hospital & Long Island Jewish Medical Center (NS/LIJ)
The residency in neurology at North Shore University Hospital & Long Island Jewish Medical Center (NS/LIJ) provides a broad clinical and didactic curriculum that not only meets but far surpasses the training requirements set by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. The three-year program begins at the PGY-2 level. Throughout the three years, the resident will attain the experience, skills and knowledge necessary for the independent practice of neurology.
Residents interact with clinicians at various teaching sites throughout the didactic program, including Long Island Jewish Medical Center, Cohen’s Children’s Medical Center, North Shore University Hospital and the clinics at 611 Northern Boulevard. This program offers significant individualized attention to the residents as well as a diverse exposure to the field of neurology.
The vast array of clinical material covered by this residency is further enhanced by an extremely dedicated full-time teaching staff with areas of sub-specialization in stroke, epilepsy, neuromuscular diseases, neuro-rehabilitation, movement disorders, behavioral neurology, pain and headache, neuro-oncology, and multiple sclerosis, as well as a range of other specialties. The voluntary staff also actively participates in the teaching program to expose residents to all models of practice. The breadth of opportunity available to our residents continues to grow exponentially
