Welcome to the Neurology Residency Program
A message from Paul H. Janda, DO, JD, Program Director
Welcome to the Valley Hospital Medical Center (VHMC) Neurology Residency Program. This is a tremendous accomplishment as you embark upon your career in neurology. The Neurology residency is a four-year training program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) that accepts two residents per year for a total of eight neurology residents.
VHMC will provide you with extensive academic and clinical experience. You will be able to treat a diverse patient population comprised of a vast amount of pathology. The Neurology Outpatient Clinic at the Las Vegas Neurology Center is located within walking distance of VHMC. The clinic is staffed with well-trained personnel and advanced diagnostic equipment. You will manage your own patients under the supervision of a diverse teaching faculty, many of whom have neurology subspecialty training. Additionally, you will be able to partake in the treatment and management of patients in clinical trials in the outpatient setting as well.
The primary goals of the program are to:
- Educate 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 Medical Center and other patients with neurological disorders
The Neurology Residency Program at VHMC aims to graduate neurologists who are well-rounded from a clinical standpoint while concurrently emphasizing attainment of board certification. All the neurology teaching faculty are committed to this goal. The program has a 100 percent board pass rate and a 100 percent fellowship acceptance rate. Additionally, resident well-being is strongly emphasized and evident.
As the Neurology Residency Program Director, my commitment to teaching and resident happiness is conspicuous and unwavering. All the other neurology faculty also share the same sentiment and focus as it is our cohesive aim to render an excellent training experience.
We look forward to building your neurological clinical skills as you embark upon becoming a well-trained and board-certified neurologist. Upon graduation from the Neurology Residency Program at VHMC, you will certainly have an excellent clinical acumen founded upon thorough training combined with a robust understating of academic neurology.
We look forward to being a part of the bright future ahead of you.
The neurology curriculum consists of four years of progressive clinical and didactic experience.
