Graduate Medical Education:
For those students who are passionate about anatomy, detective work, problem solving, and brain function (plus bowties!), the military offers three neurology residency training programs. There is an Army program at Madigan Army Medical Center, an Air Force program at San Antonio Military Medical Center, and a combined Army/Navy program at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. The residency is 3 years in duration plus the intern year. Through direct patient encounters, didactic sessions, and research opportunities residents expand upon and refine their neurologic exam, localization skills, and knowledge of common and uncommon disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system as well as neurologic manifestations of systemic diseases. Residents at all three programs are also strongly encouraged to participate in and pursue research interests.
The USUHS Department of Neurology maintains close relationships with the faculty and residents at all three programs who are integral members of the USUHS Neurology staff.
