About the Program

Sim LabProgram Mission

The goal of the UNC Adult Neurology Residency Program is to train outstanding clinical neurologists and to foster our residents' interest in teaching and academic neurology. This is accomplished through extensive exposure to clinical neurology and thoughtful didactics in a collegial and nurturing environment. Through the course of our training program, residents progressively obtain greater independence and autonomy as they gain more experience in managing patients.

As developed by our residents:
