Our program is a 4-year categorical residency, that includes a PGY-1 year of internal medicine training. The Neurology PGY-1 year is identical to that of the first-year residents in the Internal Medicine Residency Program UTMB Internal Medicine Residency Home at UTMB with the exception of two months of inpatient neurology experience for neurology interns.
Each year we take 6 new neurology residents into our program. Most of the training takes place at our Galveston campus, but in addition to our Galveston campus residents rotate at MD Anderson Cancer Center and Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston.
UTMB prides itself in being a tertiary academic center seeing complicated cases referred from other hospitals in south east Texas. UTMB Galveston is a comprehensive stroke center, and one of the few institutions in the country with a dedicated neuro-critical
care unit. During the inpatient blocks, residents rotate in the neuro-critical care unit, vascular neurology service, non-vascular wards service, neurology consult service and epilepsy monitoring unit. Outpatient clinics include specialized clinics
in movement disorders, neuromuscular medicine, stroke clinic, epilepsy clinic and general neurology clinic.
