Resident Life


Medical coverage is available for residents and their families at a minimum cost to the resident as is dental and eye care coverage.

Each resident gets 4 weeks of vacation per year that is to be taken during elective rotations.  It is preferred that this time be taken in either 2 week blocks or a single 4 week block although if it would be necessary to have it in week blocks, every effort would be made to accommodate that need.

The department provides $1000 per year in education funds to PGY2, PGY3 and PGY4 neurology residents.  These funds can be used for travel, conference registration or courses, books or equipment.  The department promotes and supports scholarly activities for the residents so a separate fund in available to any resident who presents at a national meeting which covers travel to and from, one night’s lodging and conference registration.
