Welcome to our 3-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 and outpatient adult neurology training, as well as their neurology resident clinic at the UF Health Neuroscience Institute – Jacksonville Tower I, 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, or clot retrieval. The Neuroscience Institute also serves as a referral center for epilepsy. Many of these patients are monitored in inpatient video-EEG rooms on the Neurology unit at UF Health Jacksonville.

Two rotations are held at the University of Florida College of Medicine Gainesville campus, where residents rotate through pediatric neurology and a basic neuroscience course. Residents will see pediatric patients with a variety of neurologic disorders, while being supervised and taught by UF physicians from the division of pediatric neurology.
