Children's Nebraska Rotations

At Children's Nebraska, the team consists of a PGY-3 neurology resident who is supervised by the pediatric neurologist on service.  On occasion, there are pediatrics residents, child psychiatry fellows, neurosurgery residents and medical students on the team.  The inpatient child neurology rotation takes place mostly at Children's Nebraska but also at UNMC.  The neurology resident takes a history, performs a neurologic examination, and collects and reviews available laboratory data prior to presenting to the attending. The neurology residents during this rotation will also provide coverage every other weekend. There are no overnight call responsibilities while on pediatric neurology. Your pediatric neurology NEX exam is expected to be completed during this rotation. Thursday mornings on this rotation consist of lectures on different topics, case reports and journal clubs.
