Application Process - Neurology Residency
After review of their application, candidates may be invited for an interview by the Resident Selection Committee. Interviews are usually conducted on Wednesdays between October and December. Interviewees are invited to attend a dinner with our neurology residents on the Tuesday evening before their interview. On Wednesday, there will be an introductory session including a presentation by the Preliminary Internal Medicine Program Director, a series of interviews, lunch with residents and faculty, and department Grand Rounds.
The University of Maryland Medical Center is located in the downtown area of Baltimore and is readily accessible from the airport, interstate highways and Amtrak. A variety of hotels are located nearby. We will provide hotel information and area maps when we send interview confirmation letters, an agenda and other information.
For your PGY-1 year
Prior to beginning training in neurology, a PGY-1 year with at least eight months of internal medicine is required at an ACGME-accredited institution in the United States.
The University of Maryland Internal Medicine Program provides excellent training through their Preliminary year program; more information about the curriculum can be found on the . There are also multiple other training programs in the Baltimore area and elsewhere that would fulfill this requirement. Applicants are encouraged to explore all PGY-1 options to determine what setting is best for their individual needs.
If you would like to complete your Neurology and Preliminary Medicine training at Maryland, please submit 2 separate ERAS applications:
- One to the University of Maryland Neurology Program
