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.

The Epilepsy section at the Division of Neurology, Queen’s University, Kingston runs busy Epilepsy clinics (targeting refractory focal epilepsy, complex generalized epilepsy as well as First seizure populations individually), along with a busy EEG lab conducting nearly 15 routine/sleep deprived EEG studies/day and 1-3 continuous EEG studies/week. Our Epilepsy monitoring unit (3 adult beds and 1 Pediatric) operates all through the year, with a 1-2 month wait list. Our comprehensive Epilepsy care program multidisciplinary meetings for presurgical evaluation are held for 2-4 hours a month. Our epilepsy surgery program offers surgical treatment to nearly 10 patients a year following extensive advanced non-invasive evaluation as well as intracranial subdural and stereo-EEG evaluation. In addition, 8-10 patients receive vagus nerve stimulation procedures per year.
We have a very active Epilepsy research program involving several clinical, advanced neurophysiological (for epilepsy and sleep) and neuroimaging technologies and epilepsy genetics, used to address research questions which are emergent and novel, with improvement of quality of life of persons with epilepsy, at the core.
Fellowships for 1-2 years would offer a balanced exposure to clinical epilepsy management and routine EEG, continuous EEG for critically ill patients or those with complex clinical conditions, interpretation of prolonged video-EEG studies and preparing presentations for monthly epilepsy surgery planning meetings. At least one research project and presentation at national and/or international meetings will be strongly encouraged.
