About This Program
Neurology at Northwestern has a rich tradition of excellence in clinical care, research, and education. Our patient population is among the most diverse in Illinois. Our department is ranked in the top 10 among institutions nationally and in the top 10 in NIH funding nationally. We are at the forefront of remarkable advances in basic neurosciences and clinical therapeutics for conditions previously considered incurable. Our goal is to train capable and caring neurologists who will be future leaders in the field. Residents at Northwestern will learn how to manage common and complex patients in both inpatient and outpatient settings in every neurological subspecialty. We are dedicated to helping residents develop into excellent clinicians for academic or private practice careers, providing mentorship and opportunity for skilled scientists, and providing training and guidance for future medical educators. We have designed many opportunities to prepare residents to become exceptional neurologists in any career path that suits them.
