Message from the Chairman
The Department of Neurology at the North Shore-LIJ Health System has under gone exciting changes. On July 1, 2006, the residency training programs at the North Shore University Hospital and the Long Island Jewish Medical Center fully integrated. The name of the new program is the Albert Einstein College of Medicine at the North Shore-LIJ Health System. The residency training program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, having received full approval with no citations during its May 2005 review. The ACGME recently approved the Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship Program.
This extraordinarily active program draws upon the clinical teaching opportunities at:
Montefiore Medical Center
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 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. Having trained residents for more than 25 years, I am extraordinarily energized by the prospect of collaborating with all of the attending physicians and residents to provide an environment of clinical learning and scholarly pursuit.
