Neurology Residency

Thank you for your interest in the Case Neurology Residency program. Our program has had a long-standing tradition of preparing residents for successful and rewarding careers in both academic and private practice neurology.

The Case Neurology Residency Program is a Four-Year Categorical Program in Neurology that includes a PGY-1 year of internal medicine training. The Neurology PGY-1 year is identical to that of the first year residents in the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Case with the exception of two months of inpatient neurology and one month of elective. The PGY-1 neurology residents are supervised by the Program Directors both in Internal Medicine and in Neurology.

Our program was founded in 1961 by Dr. Joseph Foley. Through the years, we have only had four department chairs indicating remarkable stability in the program. We have a diverse faculty which covers the specialties which are organized into (16) Centers of Excellence:

Brain Health and Memory Center
Brain Tumor & Neuro-Oncology Center
Center for Music & Medicine
Community Neurology Center
Epilepsy Center
Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery Center
Parkinson's and Movement Disorders Center
Neurocritical Care Center
Neurological and Behavioral Outcomes Center
Neuromuscular Center
Neuropsychiatry Center
Neuroscience Nursing Practice Center
Rainbow Neurological Center
Spinal Neurosurgery Center
Stroke & Cerebrovascular Center
Translational Neurosciences Center

  At University Hospitals - Cleveland Medical Center and the VA Medical Center, our residents are exposed to a diversity of patients. Our faculty are committed and dedicated to training our residents through mentoring and didactic teaching to fulfill their potential as future neurologists.

As a testament to the success of our program, our residents have done fellowship training either at Case or at other major institutions, which include the most competitive fellowships programs in the country. In addition, faculty and residents of our program have gone on to take important roles in clinical neurology.

From this site, you can learn about the clinical rotations, the teaching curriculum and conferences, and the outpatient clinics. The clinical centers and facilities are described in detail. Information regarding house staff stipends and benefits, and the residency application and interview procedure are also included.
