The Department of Neurology has a number of activities with respect to its educational mission. The activities include teaching the fundamentals of neuroscience to undergraduates in the college at The University of Chicago. In addition, medical students and graduate students have the opportunity to enroll in a number of required and elective courses organized by the Division of Biological Sciences that are partly taught or directed by members of the Department of Neurology. Some of these courses target the basic or clinical neurosciences while others involve research rotations (e.g., the Summer Research program for medical students) including mentoring for PhD degrees. The courses are supplemented by a variety of additional neuroscience educational opportunities throughout the Division. The Department of Neurology trains Neurology residents in the PGY-II to PGY-IV years. Lastly, a clinical and research fellowship program is administered by the faculty of the Department of Neurology.
