Meet the Rest of the Child Neurology Faculty

A message to our applicants from Heather Burrows, M.D, Ph.D, Program Director of the Pediatrics residency

Your first two years provide a strong foundation in general pediatrics as you make the transition from medical school to residency. Our Child Neurology residents are fully integrated into our pediatric family and make a difference in the way our program functions on a regular basis. We share in celebrating your successes throughout your entire training period. The pediatric curriculum is designed specifically to meet the needs of residents going into Child Neurology, with graduated supervisory responsibility in the second year, and elective opportunities such as pediatric ophthalmology, genetics, and pediatric palliative care that fit well with your career goals. I work closely with Rachel Gottlieb-Smith, the Child Neurology Program Director, to ensure that Child Neurology residents have the appropriate mentoring and career planning from the start of their training here. I am excited to be a part of your future as a child neurologist.

A message to our applicants from Zach London, M.D., Program Director of the Adult Neurology residency

Your year with Adult Neurology at the University of Michigan is an opportunity for great personal and professional growth.  Our Child Neurology residents are an integral part of our Neurology family and help shape every aspect of our program.  We recognize that it can be an adjustment coming to Adult Neurology when your most recent clinical experience in the field may have been several years prior, so to ease the transition, we’ll have you join us for a month-long non-clinical rotation right before you start.  During this time, we will work together on case-based learning, localization exercises, and practice the examination and procedure skills used in Adult Neurology.  During your year of Adult Neurology, we will help you customize your schedule to best prepare you for your careers, with specialty rotation in EEG, EMG, epilepsy, headache, or a number of other inpatient our outpatient specialties. I look forward to the privilege of working with you!
