The Child Neurology / Pediatrics Combined Residency Program at Cincinnati Children’s prepares physicians for satisfying careers as clinicians, researchers, educators and leaders 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 subspecialties.
We offer a 5-year Child Neurology / Pediatrics Combined Residency Program, which includes 2 years of pediatrics training and 3 years of neurology training, all at Cincinnati Children’s. Our neurology and neurosurgery services were ranked No. 4 in the nation in the 2019-20 list of America’s best pediatric hospitals published by U.S. News & World Report.
The 3 years of child neurology training 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.
The adult neurology component of training includes 12 months of training at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. These rotations are scheduled over the course of a 3-year residency to allow for continued reapplication of lessons learned in adult training to be applied to the care of children. Additionally, it helps to facilitate preparation for board certification examinations and favors adult neurology learning over inpatient adult internal medicine.
