Breadth. Depth. Variety. Collaboration. Mentorship. Opportunity. These are a few words we hear again and again from our current and former Child Neurology and Neurodevelopmental Disabilities residents. Each year five new residents come to Boston Children’s Hospital to become the child neurologists of tomorrow.

The Residency Program at a glance

The three-year Child Neurology residency program at Boston Children’s Hospital provides broad, rigorous medical training across an unusually varied spectrum of patients and subspecialties, applying the latest technology and digital innovations.

All residents receive strong mentorship and career planning advice, so our graduates are well-positioned to receive NIH funding and other grants and publish their work in high-impact journals.

The Department of Neurology currently accepts five new residents into its training program each year. Please check out our How to Apply section for full details on this year’s application process.

We have received approval from the ACGME for a residency expansion. Starting with 2018 child neurology trainees, one position will be added and is available via a Reserve Match position within the ERAS/NRMP process.
