Neurology Residency

The Stanley H. Appel Department of Neurology at Houston Methodist Neurological Institute offers a four-year accredited adult neurology residency program. The program is developed to provide well-rounded training in clinical neurology and mentorship in the clinical and basic sciences that provides a strong foundation for the practicing neurologist and physician-scientist. The program has a high faculty-to-resident ratio, which allows residents access to training yet also challenges them to be autonomous.

Houston Methodist is a private, non-profit institution where residents will receive most of their training. It has earned worldwide recognition since it opened its doors in 1919, is an affiliate of Weill Cornell Medical College, and offers the latest innovations in medical, surgical and diagnostic techniques.


Through our primary academic affiliation with Weill Cornell Medical College, physicians at the Houston Methodist Neurological Institute are involved in the training of residents, fellows, and medical students. Our fully accredited educational program provides exposure to complex cases, state-of-the-art technology, and high patient volumes and are designed to prepare the best and brightest future neurologists.
