Welcome to the Boston University Neurology Residency Program! The primary goal of our program is to provide house officers with the knowledge and skills to competently diagnose and care for patients with neurological disease. Our large and diverse faculty encompasses a wide range of interests in neurology and strives to instill a sense of learning, teaching, and cooperation through instruction and supervision of each resident. Each resident has a chance to see an abundant and appropriate clinical case material, presenting the “many faces of neurologic disease”. Our Program offers the resident experience in all facets of Neurological study through exposure to the strengths of each affiliated institution, resulting in the highest quality of Neurological training available anywhere. This page is intended to be an information resource for staff, current residents, prospective applicants and medical students.
