Neurology Residency Program

Program Overview

Thank you for your interest in Neurology residency training at North Shore-LIJ Health System.  The North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System Residency Training Program in Neurology provides a broad clinical and didactic curriculum that meets 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.  The residents will interact with clinicians at various teaching sites throughout the didactic program. 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 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. The voluntary staff participates so actively in the teaching program that the distinction between voluntary and full-time has become almost meaningless. The breadth of opportunity will only grow, as the Neuroscience Initiative (a prime focus of the Health System) matures.
