Our Alumni

C Eckstein alumnus

Graduates of our residency programs excel in research, private practice, and education. Residents who are interested in specializing in different areas within neurology may pursue one our fellowship programs. All of our 2019 residency class, and five of the six members of the 2018 residency class have gone on to one of our fellowship programs. Many go on to obtain academic positions at top universities in the country, sometimes with our Department. Others go on to provide clinical care.
