Neurology

The pediatric neurology fellowship program is combined with the pediatric residency program at UTHSC. After completion of the residency program, pediatric neurology fellows complete one year of training in clinical pediatric neurology and one year of additional training including rotations in:

  • Neurosurgery
  • Psychiatry
  • Outpatient pediatric neurology
  • Electives in specific interests of the fellow

Unlike other programs, the year of training in adult neurology is divided among all three neurology fellowship years.
