At Children’s Mercy, we take pride in offering a program in which you will gain significant clinical experience in an environment that promotes camaraderie and close relationships with all of your colleagues.
We are an integrated child neurology residency with two years of training in pediatrics at Children’s Mercy Kansas City, followed by an adult neurology year at The University of Kansas Medical Center, then two years of subsequent training in child neurology at Children’s Mercy. We are now ACGME approved for a class size of three residents per year.
We also offer a Basic Neuroscience Track with a slightly altered structure - visit the Child Neurology Residency Research page for more information on this specialized track.
The program we developed offers residents a wide range of clinical experiences with diversity in the patient populations that we serve. Residents are taught by committed faculty who have a passion for helping mold their trainees into talented clinicians who will advocate for their patients.
Residents who complete our program go on to competitive fellowships as well as academic and private practices. In addition, our program strives to tailor education based on each resident’s clinical interests.
Our program aims to produce residents with an individualized education that encompasses a strong clinical foundation that will benefit them whether they choose an academic track, subspecialty fellowship, or private practice. Our hospital is positioning itself to be a leading research institution for pediatric neurological illnesses. Residents graduating from our program will be prepared to bring cutting edge neurologic care to children across the country.
