NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center (NYPWC) Neurology Residency Training Program has two major goals: The first is to develop highly qualified clinical neurologists by providing an abundant and varied patient population combined with a comprehensive educational program. The second is to identify, select, and cultivate physicians with special aptitudes for careers in research, teaching, and/or public service.
Residency training at Weill Cornell stresses the clinical approach to neurological problems based on an understanding of the pathology, physiology, biochemistry and molecular-genetic biology of neurological dysfunction and disease. Trainees learn to diagnose accurately, treat effectively, and understand the impact of social and psychological forces on neurologic symptoms. Considerable effort is placed on increasing the trainees' understanding and management of the all-too-often permanent human suffering that follows neurological illness.Top of page
