Child Neurology Residency Training Program Career Development

Whether your career goal is general clinical neurology, subspecialty research or a mix, the Child Neurology residency program provides strong support and guidance on grants, fellowships, research projects and more.

Current Careers of Former Residents



Throughout training, residents have access to advisors in the Department of Neurology who match their clinical and/or research interests. Residents typically meet with their advisors at least two times each year. Advisors develop a personal relationship with the resident, provide career guidance, support and planning provide mentorship and advice about career choices, advocate for the resident, facilitate the resident’s professional development, and serve as a resource in personal and professional decision-making.

Research Career Advisory Group

In their first year, residents begin meeting with our Research Career Advisory Group to ensure that they have the breadth of expertise needed to help guide them into a research area. The group helps decide on the need for an additional research advisor and provides advice on how to get started with a project. In the second and third years, residents receive continued guidance on their research progress.
