The neurology residency program at Cooper University Hospital is pleased to offer a four-year categorical program offering three resident positions for each year of training. The program reinforces clinical patient care and scholarly pursuits through our most valuable resource—our patients with diverse neurological disorders and backgrounds.
House officers are exposed to patients with diverse conditions while rotating on the general neurology service, which covers the video-EEG/epilepsy unit, the inpatient neurology service, and general neurology consultations throughout the hospital. Residents rotating on the stroke service acquire additional skills and experience while evaluating and managing patients admitted to our six-bed stroke unit, as well as critically ill patients in our several intensive care units.
Neurology residents also get significant exposure to outpatient neurology through designated monthly rotations in general neurology and diverse subspecialty electives throughout their training at Cooper. This is supplemented by a continuity clinic, in which residents develop an appreciation for the long-term care of a contingency of patients that they will follow throughout their neurology training. Senior neurology residents have great flexibility rotating through a wide variety of subspecialty elective experiences, while also assuming more responsibility directing and teaching junior residents and medical students.
The didactic curriculum is very flexible and topics are adjusted frequently in response to the needs and interest of the residents. As a group, our residents consistently perform above average on in-service exams and feel confident and well-prepared to take their board exams, for which our graduates boast a 100% board pass rate.
Our vast diversity of patients and passionate faculty foster an environment that has led to numerous scholarly works by our residents. Our residents have presented dozens of posters at national and international meetings, including posters which have won awards at our national society meetings. Academic pursuits are encouraged through special stipends for publication and presentation as well as availability of a research elective.
