The Neurology Residency Program at the University of Virginia believes in an environment that focuses foremost on the education and training of its residents. Since our inception, we have been a program of the residents and by the residents, always considering: 1) quality of patient care; 2) resident quality of life; 3) resident quality of training; and 4) compliance with governing organizations, including the ACGME. Our training program is designed to provide the necessary acumen for all aspects of a career in neurology, including proficiency in history-taking, the neurological exam, localization of disease, the neurological formulation, exposure to clinical and basic science research, evidence-based practice, communication and leadership. By this foundation, we hope to inspire the UVa Neurologist towards a successful career of their choosing, whether as clinician, scientist, and/or educator, and encourage them to practice by the ideals of our program inspiring future generations to come.
