The Division of Neurology at Queen's University is proud to offer a five-year postgraduate residency program fully accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.  Our residents have exposure to a good mix of neurological cases as our unit draws the most complex and challenging neurologic cases from the region, and this mixture of common and unusual patient presentations prepares residents well for clinical practice.

Our program also offers good education to service ratio. We don’t compromise the educational experience of our trainees by allowing service demands to influence the program. The service requirements are met by dedicated attending staff in order to avoid compromising the training program by unreasonable workloads.  

I’m especially proud of our congenial work environment. There is a collegial relationship with the neurology attending staff as well as with the neurosurgeons, neuropathologists, physiatrists and neuroradiologists. This is enhanced by the small size of the training program and may not be found at other larger centres.

Our residents have met with great success after their training.  They do exceptionally well on their Royal College examinations and have gone on to academic appointments in Canada and major U.S. centres as well as community practice.

I hope you take this opportunity to learn more about Neurology at Queen's and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at taylors1@kgh.kari.net.
