Welcome to Stanford Child Neurology!

Our Child Neurology Division has undergone an exciting phase of expansion, and now offers the largest faculty in the Western United States. As a result, all residents experience great breadth and depth across all facets of Child Neurology. There are four child neurology positions a year (see Clinical Training).

Our program is a 5 year combined program with our general pediatrics residency. The first two years are dedicated to general pediatrics training, and years 3-5 are dedicated to neurology training. Over the course of three years, Child Neurology residents spend approximately 12 months on adult (6 inpatient and 6 outpatient months) and 12 months on child neurology, with the remainder devoted to subspecialty rotations and electives.
