In the neurology training years (PGY3, PGY4, PGY5): 12 months are spent rotating in adult neurology with the remainder of the 24 months dedicated to practicing child neurology and elective rotations as per ACGME & American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology (ABPN) requirements.

Timing of pediatric and adult neurology months:

In our residency program, we blend the adult neurology months over the three-year period of neurology training (PGY3, PGY4, PGY5) rather than doing all twelve months in PGY3 year.

However, most residents typically opt to complete the majority of required inpatient adult months in their PGY3 year and tend to focus more on outpatient/elective adult neurology months in their PGY4 and/or PGY5 year.
