The main goal of your PGY-1 year is establish a solid background in internal medicine. Your rotations will include general medicine inpatient at University Hospital and at the VA, MICU and electives.
We recommend electives in Cardiology, Rheumatology and Endocrinology, as there is a great deal of clinical overlap of neurology with these subspecialties. During the second half of your PGY-1 year you will spend one month on the Neuro-ICU service during the day time and then 2 separate 2 week blocks on Neuro ICU Night Float. You will be supervised during these rotations by on-site Neurology fellows and/or senior Neurology residents. After completing this year, you will be ready to hit the ground running in Neurology.
