The University of Kansas is a major educational institution, and KU neurology residents spend a significant portion of their training at KU's Hospital and Medical Centers. However, residents are also sent outside of the facility to train at some of our affiliate hospitals in Kansas and Missouri that assist in broadening a resident's scope. Some of our training partners include Children's Mercy Hospital, Truman Medical Center, Leavenworth VA Hospital, and KC VA Hospital. For a more detailed breakdown of each year and where time is spent, check out our Rotations & Curriculum Page.
- Each resident is assigned a continuity clinic where they are supervised by faculty attendings, but manage their own patients.
- Continuity clinics help residents develop a comprehensive understanding of clinical care and assist in broadening training experience.
- Clinics are assigned in the residents' PGY-2 year and continue throughout their residency training.
