Neurology Residency Program

Welcome Letter

Welcome to the University of Colorado Neurology Residency Program. Our program is deeply committed to creating compassionate and well-rounded leaders in the field of Neurology. Strengths of our program include a broad educational curriculum, diverse and expansive clinical exposure and robust mentoring for career development. Our teaching mission lies at the fundamental core of the department, partnering with our residents to promote diversity, collaboration and creating a culture of inquiry.

Clinical experience is robust, with a balance of inpatient and outpatient training with ample exposure to both general neurology and every subspecialty. Comprehensive sub-specialty training in all areas of neurology are offered including Behavioral Neurology, Movement Disorders, Neuromuscular Disorders, Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology, Epilepsy, Sleep disorders, Stroke, Neuro-Critical Care, Neuro-ophthalmology, Neuro-otology, Neuro-infectious Disease, Neuro-Oncology, Headache and Pain Medicine, and Neuro-Palliative Care.

We offer training at four major academic medical centers including the University of Colorado Hospital, Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center, Denver Health Medical Center, and Children’s Hospital Colorado. These opportunities create exposure to diverse patient populations while allowing our residents to care for complex neurologic conditions. Affiliated training programs in Child Neurology, Neurosurgery, Neuroradiology, Neurorehabilitation, Psychiatry, and Internal Medicine are among the best in the country and contribute to our residents' education and to the advanced training environment at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. To round out the educational experience, residents engage in robust research, quality improvement and medical education opportunities.

We strongly believe that well-rounded residents must cultivate healthy lives outside of the hospital; this makes for better physicians and colleagues. Our program encourages wellness and resiliency through formal and informal activities. Both department sponsored and informal social activities occur regularly. This is further enhanced by the opportunity to live and play in picturesque surroundings. Denver is a vibrant metropolitan community with vast cultural attractions. The beauty of the Rocky Mountains is easily accessible, and the climate of Colorado is incomparable.

At the University of Colorado teaching is at the forefront of our mission. We are passionate about teaching, patient care and research and pride ourselves on our outstanding residents and their ultimate contributions to the field of Neurology. The University of Colorado is an outstanding place to train. We hope you will visit to see why. We look forward to welcoming you.
