UCSF’s neurology training programs have achieved a breadth, depth and quality that are unexcelled. From the early days of medical school through post-doctoral training, our students are exposed to the most challenging clinical cases, to top-flight research programs, and to some of the most respected neurological scientists and clinicians in the world today.

The Neurology Residency Training Program provides broad-based clinical experience across three hospitals and a tremendous variety of subspecialty areas. Our goal is to produce excellent clinical neurologists capable of providing the highest quality care to patients.

We seek to develop qualities of intellectual honesty, curiosity and inquiry in preparation for lifelong continuing medical education. We seek residents who are sensitive to the rights and dignity of their patients, who are dedicated to medical student teaching, and who respect the roles of all members of the healthcare team. After satisfactory completion of the three-year residency program, residents are eligible to sit for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology certifying exam. Many of our residents choose to pursue clinical or research fellowship training after completion of the program. We are eager to help our residents obtain suitable positions at UCSF or elsewhere in accord with their interests.
