MedStar Georgetown - NIH Neurology Residency Program (MGNNR)

Structure and Training

NINDS/NIH and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital (Georgetown) have partnered to create a specialized ACGME accredited neurology residency training track. The goal of this training program is to create a unique clinical experience and research training opportunity that will train the future leaders in neuroscience research.

Selected residents will rotate through various hospitals participating in the Georgetown University Hospital neurology residency program for their clinical training. In addition, starting as early as their first year of neurology (PGY2), residents will rotate through the NIH clinical center and will be paired with specific basic or clinical research labs and mentors of their interest and choice. Over the period of their residency and in particular their final year, residents will spend a majority of their time at the NIH advancing their research project and learning related techniques and methodologies.

Eligibility and Application

Medical students considering a neurology residency and who have a strong interest in research are encouraged to apply. This track offers two positions per year. Applicants will apply through the Georgetown Neurology residency application process.

Georgetown Neurology participates with the National Residency Match Program (NRMP). Georgetown is an advanced Neurology Residency Program and applicants may need to also apply separately for an internal medicine PGY1 position.

All applications are processed through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Applications for the Neurology Residency Program must be complete and submitted by ERAS Deadline. Please see the GME page for more details.
