Education and Training Programs

The Department of Neurology provides education and training across the spectrum of learners. 

Medical Student Clerkship

The neurology clerkship is a required four-week experience in the second year of medical school. The goal is to teach students the principles and skills underlying the recognition and management of the neurological diseases that a general medical practitioner is most likely to encounter in practice.

Residency

Each year we welcome six residents to join our program. At the University of Michigan, we share a passion for teaching and mentorship, and a commitment to diversity. Your experience at the University of Michigan will afford you many opportunities, and prepare you to be an educator and a leader in our health care community.

Fellowship Programs

We offer post-residency clinical training in nine major subspecialty areas. Our epilepsy, neuromuscular disease, sleep medicine, and stroke fellowships are ACGME-accredited, and headache, neuro-oncology, and neurocritical care fellowships are UCNS-accredited. 

Research Training Opportunities

Supported by training grants from the NIH, our research training programs provide additional training for those who wish to pursue a career in clinical or basic research following their residency. Our programs provide the necessary infrastructure and formal training to promote your success.
