Applicants will need to complete one year of preliminary medicine training before starting their training in neurology. We offer guaranteed preliminary medicine positions at our institutions through our joint Advanced/Prelim (A/P) tracks: 3 positions at Staten Island University Hospital (SIUH) and 3 positions at Lenox Hill Hospital (LHH). If you are interested in either of these tracks, please notify us when you schedule your interview and we will coordinate with our internal medicine programs. Applicants applying to the our Advanced (A) track and are interested in our preliminary medicine programs will list these programs on their supplemental rank order list.
For the 2021 season, the SIUH IM program requires a separate interview in addition to the neurology interview while the LHH program does not require an additional interview. Please contact the program coordinator for any questions regarding scheduling additional interviews. Information sessions are held regularly by both IM programs for those applicants interested in preliminary medicine training.
Applicants can also choose to match elsewhere for their preliminary medicine year as long as training fulfills ACGME requirements prior to starting Neurology as a PGY2.
