Welcome to our three-year, ACGME-accredited Neurology Residency Program at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville. In addition to the neurology residency, the UF College of Medicine – Jacksonville has many other residency and fellowship programs.

The neurology residency program's diverse competency-based curriculum combines an outstanding clinical experience with bedside and didactic teaching from exceptional UF faculty. The curriculum also provides extensive exposure to neurological research.

Neurology residents conduct their inpatient training at UF Health Jacksonville, a Joint Commission-certified primary Stroke Center and an Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA)-certified Comprehensive Stroke Center. The hospital's helicopter air ambulance is used to transport patients with ischemic strokes to the hospital from a 12-county area. These patients are evaluated for intravenous thrombolysis, intra-arterial thrombolysis and clot retrieval. Patients with complex seizure disorders are admitted to a six-bed video EEG monitoring unit on the neurology floor. Outpatient adult neurology training, including the neurology resident continuity clinic, occurs at UF Health Neuroscience Institute – Jacksonville Tower I. The Neuroscience Institute also serves as a referral center for sub-specialty neurology, including epilepsy, demyelinating diseases, neuromuscular disorders, movement disorders and headache.

Residents spend one month each year at the University of Florida College of Medicine Gainesville campus, rotating through pediatric neurology. Residents see pediatric patients with a wide variety of neurologic disorders while being supervised and taught by UF physicians from the division of pediatric neurology. Our program provides lodging while on this rotation.
