Neurology Residency Teaching Conferences

The Neurology Program at LVHN provides a full array of teaching conferences for its residents. These include a weekly Clinical Case Conference, Neuropathology Conference, Neuroradiology/Stroke Conference, EEG/Epilepsy Conference, a Medical Research Conference, and daily general neurology teaching rounds. Pediatric neurology teaching rounds include weekly in-depth discussion of clinical cases, including the neuroradiological and neuropathological aspects. In addition, specific topics in neurology are formally reviewed during the weekly Neurology Grand Rounds conferences during the academic year. Lecturers at Neurology Grand Rounds include physicians within LVHN as well as invited guests from outside the program. During each July and August, Grand Rounds are replaced by a resident conference, run by the senior third-year residents and selected staff, to educate the incoming residents in emergency neurology. Morbidity and Mortality Rounds are held once a month. A Journal Club, organized by the chief residents, is held monthly, to discuss and review important articles in a key subfield of neurology with an invited faculty member.
