Our Mission & Aims

The University of Louisville Neurology Training Program is committed to training the best and brightest, ABPN board-eligible neurologists of the future.

The PGY1 Internship year provides a broad experience in Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine and Neurology. PGY2, 3 & 4 years offers an excellent breadth and depth of training with increased expertise and responsibility as the resident progresses. Exposing the idea to “localize the smallest possible lesion”, our classic training emphasizes detailed history-taking and examination skills. Coupled with state-of-the-art clinical resources, the curriculum allows the resident to hone their clinical acumen over three years. Training includes protected didactic time for a weekly-organized lecture series, Grand Rounds, Resident Case Conference and Journal Club and other sub specialty conferences.

A successful academic is fostered through exposure to diverse faculty, nationally recognized within their field, with well defined research exposure with the final goal of major journal publications/national meeting presentations by the end of residency. Our faculty mentorship program matches residents with faculty of similar sub specialty interests, helping them plan for the future.

Subspecialties include cognitive neurology, vascular/critical care, interventional neurology, neuro-oncology, epilepsy, neuromuscular disease, neuroophthalmology,
movement disorders, multiple sclerosis/neuro-immunology, headache, sleep medicine, child neurology and research.

The programs ultimate goal is to construct and solidify a strong foundation upon which a successful career in neurology is built.

The University of Louisville Neurology Residency Program’s aims to produce quality adult neurologists who are board-eligible in Neurology. Our program aims
to continue to increase resident exposure to elective rotations and/or research based on their preferences. We continue to provide a Telemedicine/Tele-stroke
rotation since this field of medicine is rapidly growing and thriving, rotation praised in the past by recent graduates. Many parts of the country rely on Telestroke
since there are rural areas, such as Kentucky or expansive regions with no stroke specialists available that benefit from our telemedicine capabilities for
delivering immediate patient care when needed.
