Ambulatory Rotations and Clinics

Neurology Continuity Clinics

All residents at the PGY-2 level and above are required to attend one pre-assigned half-day of clinic per week at the VA Bronze Clinic, which is located in the brand-new ambulatory care center.  The clinic provides general neurology care to veterans, and each resident carries the same patient caseload throughout their three years of dedicated neurology training to establish continuity.  Though attendings staff each clinic and are available for guidance, patient care is dictated by the resident and they are responsible for placing all orders, following up on tests and delivering results, and responding to patient phone calls.

General Neurology & Subspecialty Clinics

During the general neurology outpatient rotation, residents have the opportunity to gain general neurology exposure at UNMC main campus, UNMC Twin Creeks campus in Bellevue (a short 15 minute drive from campus) or at Methodist hospital, a short 8 min drive from campus.  In addition, subspecialty clinics are also available at Bellevue, UNMC, or Village Pointe and may include Behavioral/Cognitive Neurology, Epilepsy, Neuromuscular, Neuroimmunology/Multiple Sclerosis, Neuro-Oncology, Movement Disorders, Interventional Pain medicine, Sleep medicine, Neuroradiology and Vascular/Stroke Neurology.

Resident Clinic

This is a resident run clinic on Thursday and Friday mornings every week that is overseen by a staff physician.  The purpose of the clinic is to facilitate more immediate access and transition of care for patients discharged from the inpatient neurology services and/or patients referred or seen as a consultation in the emergency department.  Patients are seen once in the resident clinic and then are either discharged from clinic or referred to establish long-term care with a general or subspecialty neurology clinic.
