How to Apply
Currently, all Duke Neurology residency positions (PGY 2-4) are filled. We are now accepting applications for seven residency positions via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) to start Neurology as PGY-2s in July, 2021. Only applications entered through ERAS will be considered. Our deadline for accepting applications is October 12, 2019. We realize some applications will not be complete by this time but we encourage applicants to start the application process early.
Neurology Program Interviews
Neurology Residency interviews are granted after a completed ERAS application is reviewed by the Residency Selection Committee. All applications are reviewed in their entirety; we do not use specific USMLE scores to screen applications.
If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted by Gina Murray, the neurology training program administrator using Interview Broker, an online scheduling system. You will be able to schedule your own interview using this website.
We encourage you to submit your application early as our interview slots are limited. Our deadline for receiving applications from ERAS is October 11, 2019. We will have eight interview days:
- October 23, 2019
- October 30, 2019
- November 6, 2019
- November 13, 2019
- November 20, 2019
- December 4, 2019
- December 11, 2019
- December 18, 2019
All interview days are on a Wednesday.
If You Are Selected for an Interview
The night before your interview, you will be invited to attend our Interesting Case Conference (5:00-6:00 p.m.) with our residents and some of the faculty. This conference is one of our core conferences and your attendance will enable you to enjoy part of what makes neurology fun: discussing interesting and unique neurological cases to help patients and colleagues. Immediately following, you are invited to have dinner with some of our residents at a local restaurant. This will allow you to talk with our residents in an informal setting. We strongly encourage you to attend the dinner because it is an ideal opportunity to learn about our program and meet your future team.
The interview day includes attendance at Neuroscience Grand Rounds, short interviews with faculty members, a tour of Duke University Hospital and other areas of interest, and lunch with the residents and faculty. In the afternoon, Residency Program Director Chris Eckstein, MD, will provide an overview of Duke Neurology including clinical specialties, research opportunities, and fellowships. One of the Medicine faculty will also present an overview of the Duke internship. The interview day typically lasts from 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. but times are subject to change.
