The Department of Neurology offers a strong residency program that affords participants the opportunity for rotations with neurologists in three hospitals: Tufts Medical Center, St. Elizabeth's Medical Center, and the Lahey Clinic Medical Center. These individuals have diverse sub-specialty interests and skills but share a desire to provide in-depth and personal training with a unified philosophy regarding the value of clinical medicine. All are full time faculty and are fully committed to the residency program. The location of our institutions and the reputation of our staff allow for resident exposure to the full spectrum of neurologic problems. We are cognizant of the changing demographics of neurologic practice. Our residents will gain extensive experience in community neurology and in outpatient clinical settings while continuing to receive ample exposure to our traditional strengths of tertiary care and neurologic intensive care.
