Didactic lectures and patient management discussions are held year-round. At the beginning of the year is an emergency lecture series on neurological emergencies. Throughout the year, didactic lectures focus on the integration of core neuroscience principles with clinical neurology, following the American Academy of Neurology core curriculum. Neuroanatomy and neurophysiology are emphasized, but the lectures also include neuropathology, neuropharmacology and neuroimaging.

 Clinical faculty conducts lectures on: 

  • Behavioral Neurology
  • Child Neurology
  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • Critical Care & Emergency Neurology
  • Epilepsy
  • Geriatric Neurology
  • Headache & Facial Pain
  • Movement Disorders
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Neural Repair And Rehabilitation
  • Neuroendocrinology
  • Neuroepidemiology
  • Neurogeneticics
  • Neuroimaging
  • Neuroinfectious Disease
  • Neuromuscular
  • Neuro-Oncology
  • Neuro-ophthalmology/Neuro-Otology
  • Pain Medicine
  • Sleep Medicine
  • Stroke & Vascular Neurology
  • Women’s Issues In Neurology   

These faculty lectures emphasize clinical evaluation and assessment tools, localization and pathophysiology.

 In addition to faculty lectures, there is a weekly resident-run Tuesday noon case-conference. Child neurology cases and bioethics are discussed on a monthly basis at these Tuesday noon case-conferences. There is also a weekly resident-run board review series. The residents are welcome to attend the neurophysiology lecture series for the fellows. Throughout the year, additional educational opportunities arise including regularly scheduled journal clubs, various multidisciplinary case conferences (e.g., epilepsy, vascular), and morbidity and mortality conferences.
