GME: Neurology Residency

The Neurology residency is an AOA-approved four-year training program that accepts two residents per year for a total of eight Neurology residents.

The Valley Hospital Medical Center Neurology Residency program is a comprehensive, organized training program that allows for progressive responsibility in caring for patients with neurologic disease in a variety of settings. The Neurology Residency provides resident training to prepare physicians for the independent practice of the high quality clinical neurology. Research and teaching are additional components of the program.

The primary goals of the program are:

  • Education of residents for the independent practice of clinical neurology
  • Provide neurologists for the Clark County community which currently has an acute shortage
  • Provide coverage for the primary stroke center at Valley Hospital, and other patients with neurological disorders

The Neurology program has a full didactic schedule which includes Lectures, Grand Rounds, Board Review and Journal Club. Some didactics such as Tumor Board are held in conjunction with the Internal Medicine program. Scholarly endeavors are an integral part of the program, with a research month is scheduled in the fourth year to complete a research paper suitable for publication.

The curriculum consists of four years of progressive clinical and didactic experience. The first year focuses on a strong base of internal medicine, medicine sub-specialties, surgery, surgical subspecialties, emergency medicine, and critical care.

Other rotations include pediatric neurology, EEG, EMG, neuroradiology, neuro-ophthalmology, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation.
