Research Opportunities

Expectations for PGY1 Residents

During their first year of Residency training, Residents are expected to identify one or two specific areas of research interest. Under faculty supervision, they engage in a research project during the remainder of Residency training. Up to six months of elective time can be devoted to research during the second and third years of Residency. The effort is expected to culminate in an abstract presented at a national meeting (eg. American Academy of Neurology) and a publication in a peer-reviewed journal. The Resident arranges a research project with a faculty member and specifies research objectives that are realistic for the duration of time devoted. The research project must be approved by the Program Director and by the Chairman.

Research Opportunities include:

  • Cerebrovascular Disease Center
  • Brain Injury Research Center
  • Interventional Neuroradiology
  • Movement Disorders
  • Neuromuscular Disorders
  • Stroke and Neurocritical Care
  • Dementia
  • Neurocognitive and TBI
  • Dementia
  • Sleep
