This four-year program is significantly weighted towards clinical/bedside training. One of the attending neurologists conducts daily rounds at Botsford. Office neurology supplements in-patient hospital exposure, with the attempt to provide the resident with at least 1/2 day per week in an office setting.
Didactics are supplemented through a consortium with MSUCOM involving the neurosciences. On site campus lectures are scheduled on selective Fridays at MSU. Teleconferences typically occur on selective Tuesdays with Botsford Residents presenting cases when assigned.
Out services are obtained at various institutions or settings, depending upon availability. Presently, Henry Ford, University of Michigan, the DMC and MIND are the primary settings for out services.
Present out services include:
Depending upon scheduling, one to three months of electives may be granted to the resident, including pain control, sleep disorders and further neurophysiology training.
