Neurology / Pediatrics

  • Neurology / Pediatrics Combined Residency Program

    The Child Neurology Program at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center prepares physicians for satisfying careers as clinicians, researchers, educators and leaders in child neurology. Our program meets the requirements of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) for certification in “Neurology with Special Qualifications in Child Neurology.” As one of the largest child neurology divisions in the country, we are dedicated to providing excellent resident education along with outstanding patient care and research across a spectrum of sub-specialties.

The hospital is nationally ranked in all 10 pediatric specialties evaluated by U.S. News & World Report.

    The three years of child neurology training at Cincinnati Children’s includes 12 months of required inpatient, consult and outpatient rotations, and 12 months of focus on subspecialties and research. Educational opportunities include subspecialty and multidisciplinary clinical and research programs. Research is integral to both our mission and education, and many residents present their research at national meetings.

    Adult neurology training takes place at the University of Cincinnati hospital and clinics and includes 12 months of inpatient, consult and outpatient rotations distributed over three years. This allows for continued reapplication of lessons learned in adult training to the care of children, facilitates preparation for board certification examinations and favors adult neurology learning over inpatient adult internal medicine.
