The success of the Neurology Residency Program is directly attributable to the outstanding qualities of our residents, an environment conducive to learning and career support, and the academic, clinical care, and educational contributions of our faculty as role models. Our residency program is directed by John Engstrom, MD and Ms. Carol Piunti serves as the Education Division Manager. We have 2 full-time coordinator assistants (Ms. Vicky leong and Ms. Michelle Cereghino) to help with oversight of program operations. Our chief and senior residents provide peer leadership that is essential to the success of our program.
The UCSF Neurology Residency Program continues to grow. We currently have 41 neurology residents (36 adult, 5 child). We have rolled the R1 year into the neurology residency with 8 adult residents last year and have a flexible residency program (with time blocks for areas of concentration) which is starting a very successful 6th year this year. We are fortunate to attract and match outstanding residency applicants.
