Neurology Residency & Fellowship
Neurology is a medical specialty dealing with disorders of the nervous system. To be specific, it deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of disease involving the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems, including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissue, such as muscle. The corresponding surgical specialty is neurosurgery. A neurologist is a physician specializing in neurology and trained to investigate, or diagnose and treat neurological disorders. Neurologists may also be involved in clinical research, and clinical trials, as well as basic research and translational research. Neurology, being a branch of medicine, differs from neuroscience, which is the scientific study of the nervous system in all its aspects.
Overview of the Specialty of Neurology
The specialty of neurology is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of nervous system disorders involving the brain, spinal cord and other nerve and muscular conditions as well as the blood vessels that relate to them. Many neurological problems are characterized by pain and can be chronic, debilitating and difficult to treat. Headaches, strokes and seizure disorders are typical conditions neurologists treat. A large portion of the practice of neurology is consultative, but the neurologist may also be the primary physician.
Training Requirements for Neurology
Training generally consists of a minimum of four years of postgraduate education. Entry into a neurology residency training program is preceded by 12 months of ACGME-accredited graduate training in the United States or Canada, usually in general internal medicine. ACGME-approved residency training programs in neurology must provide three years of graduate education in neurology. There are 126 neurological residency training programs accredited by the ACGME for 2009/2010 offering over 500 advanced positions for categorical/advanced training available to U.S. seniors.
Matching Program Information and Match Statistics for Neurology
Match results through the Neurology Matching Program and competitiveness information for neurology residency training positions are summarized on the right. Beginning with the 2007 match, neurology residency training programs will participate in the National Resident Matching Program.
Subspecialty/Fellowship Training in Neurology
Subspecialty/fellowship training upon completion of a neurology residency training program is available in child neurology and clinical neurophysiology. Detailed information about the scope of these subspecialty training programs, number of positions offered and length of training is available in the GMED.
