Residency & Fellowships
Through our primary academic affiliation with Weill Cornell Medical College the neurology faculty is involved in the training of residents, fellows, and medical students. Our fully accredited educational programs provide exposure to complex cases, state-of-the-art technology, and high patient volumes and are designed to prepare the best and brightest future neurologists.
- Adult Neurology Residency
A four-year accredited adult neurology residence program offers comprehensive 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.
- Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship
A one-year accredited post-graduate clinical neurophysiology fellowship program is comprised of all aspects of clinical neurophysiology and encompasses electromyography (EMG), electroencephalography (EEG), nerve conduction, sleep, evoked potentials, intra-operative monitoring and additional clinical testing modalities.
- Neuromuscular Medicine Fellowship
A one-year accredited neuromuscular medicine fellowship focuses on clinical neuromuscular medicine and includes electro-diagnostic medicine, neuropathology, clinical/translational experience and rehabilitation. The neuromuscular fellowship provides a large and varied clinical experience with more than 75 neuromuscular patients evaluated each week, from both inpatient and outpatient services.
- Neuroimaging Fellowship
The Neuroimaging Fellowship includes clinical and, for fellows with research interest, research components as well. The fellowship requires twelve months dedicated to neuroimaging but there is flexibility in structuring this time.
- Vascular Neurology Fellowship
The Vascular Neurology Fellowship program focuses on training the next generation of research specialists to lead the field in stroke prevention, treatment, and recovery.
- Movement Disorders Fellowship
The Department of Neurology offers a one-year fellowship in Movement Disorders. Fellows will received training in the diagnosis and treatment of various movement disorders including but not limited to Parkinson's disease, dystonia, spasticity, tremor, restless legs syndrome, atypical parkinsonian disorders, Huntington’s disease, chorea, Tourette's syndrome, ataxias, hemi-facial spasm, Wilson’s disease, stiff person syndrome, stereotype, paroxysmal dyskinesia, myoclonus, and functional movement disorders.
- Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry Fellowship
The Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry Fellowship was accredited in 2020 by the United Council for Neurological Subspecialties. A partnership between the Departments of Neurology and Psychiatry of Houston Methodist allows for fellows to acquire experience in the diagnosis and management of a variety of cognitive disorders including Alzheimer’s disease and related neurodegenerative disorders, the cognitive effects of stroke, epilepsy and traumatic brain injury, and synaptic autoantibody disorders.
