Pediatrics-Neurology Residency Program

Thank you for your interest in our 5 year Pediatric Neurology residency program through the Medical College of Wisconsin. Our goal is to train passionate child neurologists who will go on to be involved in a lifetime of excellence in patient care, academics and research. In keeping with work force trends suggesting the evolving training needs of Child Neurologists, we are excited to provide our Child Neurology training pathway which blends one year of pediatrics training, one year of neuroscience research, and three years of Child Neurology training. With this model, we hope to help jumpstart trainee’s research interests which can then be pursued as time permits through the clinical neurology years while maintaining eligibility to sit for the American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology boards.

After reviewing our page, please take the time to learn more about both the pediatric component and the neurology component of the program.
