Department of Neurology

Neurology covers the diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles. The Department of Neurology has an extensive presence in each phase of the medical school curriculum. In Phase 1, students are introduced to the basic anatomy and function of the nervous system as well as the major diseases encountered by neurologists in Modules 6 and 7. Students can also rotate on neurology services during their clinical immersions in Phase 1. During Phase 2, students rotate through neurology as one the required core clinical clerkships. During this course, students have extensive exposure to both the inpatient and outpatient practice of neurology. In Phase 3 of the curriculum, students can select a month-long advanced clinical rotation (ACR) in either adult or pediatric neurology. They can also select shorter or more flexible electives in neurology or certain subspecialties of neurology. Various neurology-related keystone integrated science courses (KISCs) are also offered.
