Child neurology residents at Boston Children's Hospital have a number of opportunities during their residency to hone their teaching skills. Our senior residents partner with our attendings to insure that daily inpatient rounds explicitly address topics that are relevant to the resident members of the team. Our senior residents also play an important teaching role with a variety of other individuals who come to Boston Children's Hospital to further their education.
Our senior residents also supervise approximately 36 to 48 fourth-year medical students, primarily from Harvard Medical School, who take inpatient extern clerkships on our inpatient Neurology Service each year. Our outpatient resident continuity clinics host Boston Children's Hospital psychiatry residents, and we are also involved in the training of fellows in behavioral and developmental medicine. Finally, 12 to 24 physicians, often from foreign countries, participate yearly in our teaching activities, primarily as observers.
