The Vanderbilt Neurology Residency Program is a 4 year, categorical program that aims to train outstanding clinical neurologists and the future leaders in neurology. Our diverse, general and sub-specialty faculty are committed to providing residents with unparalleled clinical experience at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center inpatient and outpatient facilities along with the Nashville Veterans Affairs Hospital.  The institution, department and program are committed to creating an environment conducive to educating residents in the care of diverse patient populations with a focus on system-based care in a culture of safety, and rigorous academic pursuits. Our unique program has many innovations including resident involvement in neurology clinic starting PGY-1 year, our annual practice habits feedback module, and a detailed mentoring program.  Didactics focus on not only medical knowledge but also critical literature review in order to create a foundation for life-long learning.  Our graduates are uniformly successful on board examinations and consistently obtain their desired fellowship and/or employment upon graduation.
