Neurology Residency

Welcome to the Department of Neurology at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria. We offer an ACGME-accredited 4-year program in Adult Neurology. The goal of this program is to provide high quality clinical training in both inpatient and outpatient care, encompassing General Neurology and its various sub-specialty fields.

Our department includes faculty trained in many different programs throughout the United States and the world. They have brought their individual experiences together to create a vibrant team of sub-specialized neurologists. We have a robust inpatient experience that is focused on mastery of core competencies, but also allows our residents to see unique cases. Early in the training, we provide a boot camp to prepare our residents for neurologic emergencies. This utilizes synchronous and asynchronous teaching, as well as simulation, in order to prepare our residents for these emergency situations prior to hands-on patient care. In the outpatient setting, the residents are exposed to a wide variety of general neurologic and subspecialty conditions in the continuity clinic and elective rotations. Our faculty are participating in investigator-initiated research, clinical trials, and quality improvement projects with involvement from our residents. We also host patient care symposiums and community outreach to interact with our patients outside of the clinical setting. Resident wellness has been a focus, and we host wellness retreats frequently throughout the year. Our goal is to develop residents who are excellent clinicians and life-long learners. Residents work closely with faculty and gain increasing autonomy throughout the residency.

The community of Peoria has a long history as a regional medical center in which the neurosciences have played a major role. This is truly an exciting time to be a part of the neurosciences and to be able to experience this rapidly changing field of medicine. Yet, as neurology continually advances its diagnostic modalities and treatment options, it is important to keep our focus on interaction with our patients. The ability to diagnose neurological disease using the tools that have been handed down by generations of neurologists is a cherished legacy that we strive to pass on to our residents.
