Our Alumni

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.

Upon completing their residencies, many of our residents go on to one of our eight fellowship programs. Many later obtain academic positions at top universities in the country, sometimes with our Department. Others go on to provide clinical care.

The Neurology Department also maintains a Facebook group for alumni of our residency program and other aspects of our Department. If you are a fellow resident, fellow, faculty member, or staff member of the Department of Neurology, click here to join the group.
