Message from the Program Director

Dear Residency Candidates:

The George Washington University Adult Neurology Residency Program has a rich tradition of training outstanding clinical neurologists. We offer a wide breadth of subspecialty exposure to ensure each graduate of our program can practice

confidently and autonomously after the four years of training whether or not they decide to go on to pursue fellowship training. We value independent and self-determined trainees and in turn provide personalized mentorship to help guide academic and personal interests accordingly. We measure our success based on our trainees' success and overall wellness.

We are fortunate to be seated in the nation's capital attracting a diverse international patient population and exposure to rare neurologic disorders. Additionally, there is ample exposure to 'bread and butter' neurology as we provide medical care to the community throughout the tristate DC metro region. Furthermore, our trainees have the privilege of serving veterans thanks to our affiliation with the Washington, DC VA Hospital.

Our department is committed to advancing the field of neurology through clinical and basic science research. We are actively involved in clinical trials throughout the various subspecialties and have solid senior faculty mentorship available for trainees interested in pursuing an academic research track.

Thank you for considering GW as your home during neurology training.



Perry K. Richardson, MD
Professor of Neurology
Adult Neurology Residency Program Director
