Observership Program


 As part of our mission to lead in Neurology education, the Department of Neurological Sciences invites medical students with a clear commitment to a career in Neurology to apply for an observership of up to one month. 

This program is designed for students who have completed at least three years of medical school and are interested in gaining experience and increasing their knowledge of neurological practice in the United States.  Accepted participants will be able to observe patient care provided by attendings and housestaff, and will participate in discussions, patient-oriented conferences, and other didactic sessions.  Observers will not be involved in direct patient care.

Accepted participants are responsible for securing their own visa, transport, and housing.  Program fees are prepaid upon acceptance.

To apply for an observership, please complete the following documents and email them to
