Neurology Residency

The Neurology Residency at LSU Health Shreveport is a fully accredited four year program, offering a PGY1 Transitional year in the Department of Medicine. It has evolved into a mature thriving program since its inception in 2005. The program offers an educational experience in all aspects of neurologic medicine and practice. Experienced faculty members supervise residents who are encouraged to make their own decisions with increasing autonomy as they rise through the post graduate levels. Residents are exposed to the subspecialties and career training leading to successful fellowship positions throughout the country. Teaching students and fellow house officers is an integral part of the professional development of our residents, as is research and publication.

   

Clinics

All residents have one to two half-day outpatient adult neurology continuity clinics per week.  Subspecialty clinics such as Epilepsy, Muscular Dystrophy Association / Neuromuscular, Headache, Movement Disorders, Multiple Sclerosis, Degenerative Disease/Dementia, Neurorehabilitation and Stroke are available during elective time. They will also participate in Pediatric Neurology clinic when on that rotation. 

   

Research and Scholarly Activities

Each resident gets personal attention to developing a scholarly activity portfolio, with biannual meetings with their mentor as well as with Dr. McGee, a specialist in education and research. She works closely with the resident throughout the three year training period to plan and implement an individual, personalized scholarly activity plan including participation in ongoing clinical research activities, protocol development and individual research implementation, and other scholarly areas of interest (grants, posters, proposed clinical guidelines, etc.) – all designed around their main areas of interest. Each resident presents their scholarly work to the department in June as a requirement for promotion to the next PGY level or graduation.
