Our program is dedicated to fostering the diverse academic research interests of our residents and offer flexibility in crafting an individualized curriculum to allow pursuit of these interests. Residents have the opportunity and are encouraged to pursue research interests at both Staten Island and Lenox Hill. As part of the largest healthcare system in New York, residents also have the opportunity to collaborate with our sister program located in Manhasset and with other sites in our system to pursue broad research opportunities. To help facilitate these academic pursuits, residents are paired with mentors and allowed elective time to help fulfill their goals.
Residents also have access to the Feinstein Institutes of Medical Research with over 4000 medical researchers and staff pursuing scientific and translational research. Residents can also participate in medical education research collaborating with our academic affiliates at the Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra University.
All of our trainees are enrolled as members of the American Academy of Neurology and receive travel funds to attend neurology conferences such as the AAN Annual Conference and other subspecialty meetings. In addition, residents will participate and present in local and regional conferences within each institution throughout their training. Residents will have access to academic resources to allow for learning and research through our medical libraries at both SIUH and LHH.
