The UTHSC Child Neurology training program is housed mainly in Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. You will also spend time at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and at the Memphis Newborn Center at Regional One Health. Your ambulatory clinic time will be in the Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital as well, as this houses the Pediatric Neurology Outpatient Clinic.  Adult neurology rotations will be completed at Methodist University Hospital, Regional One Health, and the VA Medical Center.

Our residency training program is carefully designed to provide residents with excellent exposure to a wide array of pediatric neurologic disease including epilepsy, neuromuscular disorders, neuro-oncology, headache, spasticity, developmental disorders, autism, metabolic and storage disorders, and muscular dystrophy among others. Read about our programs and learn more about living in Memphis in our Le Bonheur Fellowship Booklet.

This is an exciting time in your professional life, and will help you shape your academic and/or practice career as you continue on in, what is in our opinion, one of the most rewarding specialties in all of Pediatrics. Learn more about resident life at UTHSC

We appreciate your interest. We do offer a 5-year categorical position, with 2 years in pediatrics, followed by 3 years in child neurology. Only one application (child neurology) is needed.
