Department Overview

RR650 University of Washington Medical Center

Neurology, previously a division of the Department of Medicine, became an independent department at the University of Washington School of Medicine in autumn of 1995. The four-year residency program (including an internship) offers superb training in all facets of neurology in a setting of great institutional strength in fundamental neuroscience research. In addition, the Department of Neurology offers exceptional training programs in the Divisions of Neurogenetics and Pediatric Neurology and in the Epilepsy Center. A clinical-clerkship program provides basic training in neurology patient care. The Neurology Department is active in teaching, research, and patient care at the University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center, Seattle Children's hospital, and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Medical students, interns, neurology residents, and postdoctoral research fellows rotate through these various hospitals and participate in the learning experiences offered at each.
