Residencies & Fellowships
The best and brightest future neurologists and neurosurgeons receive exceptional training and preparation at the Houston Methodist Neurological Institute.
As a designated Center of Excellence within Houston Methodist, many of the Institute’s physicians serve as faculty members of Weill Cornell Medical College and New York-Presbyterian Hospital in providing fully accredited neurology and neurosurgery residency programs. Physicians-in-training from across the country and world participate in both programs.
The Adult Neurology Residency Training Program is founded upon excellence in training, education and pioneer advances in science and medicine. The four-year program, beginning in the PGY1 year, provides comprehensive training in clinical neurology and mentored training in the clinical and basic sciences as a foundation for the practicing neurologist and physician-scientist.
The Neurosurgery Residency is a seven-year program with extensive exposure to surgical techniques, neurology, neuropathology, and neuroradiology. It prepares residents for clinical practice and academic careers.
The Neuroimaging Fellowship includes clinical and, for fellows with research interest, research components as well. The fellowship requires 12 months dedicated to neuroimaging but there is flexibility in structuring this time.
The Neuromuscular Medicine Fellowship provides clinical training with specialization in clinical neuromuscular medicine, including electrodiagnostic medicine, neuropathology, clinical and translational experience, and rehabilitation. Each of the fellowships is one year long.
The Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship program encompasses all aspects of clinical neurophysiology, including electromyography (EMG), electroencephalography (EEG), nerve conduction, sleep, evoked potentials, intraoperative monitoring, and another clinical testing.
The Vascular Neurology Fellowship program focuses on training the next generation of research specialists to lead the field in stroke prevention, treatment, and recovery.
