Each resident spends the first two years with the Dell Medical School’s Pediatric Residency, participating in child neurology educational and social sessions as time permits. The Pediatric Residency’s teaching staff includes pediatric hospitalists, outpatient pediatricians, neonatologists, pediatric subspecialists and pediatric subspecialty surgeons who work directly with our residents. This strong foundation in general pediatrics prepares each resident well for continued training in child neurology.

The requisite adult neurology training is completed with members of the medical school’s growing adult neurology faculty, utilizing an innovative strategy that meshes adult and pediatric training. The Child Neurology Residency ensures exposure to a broad range of neurological disorders.

The Child Neurology Residency is affiliated with the Neurology and Pediatrics departments at Dell Medical School.

Training Facilities

The primary pediatric teaching facility for general pediatrics and child neurology is Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas. Outpatient rotations are held at ‘Specially for Children.
