Child Neurology and Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Residency Training Programs | About the Program

Are you ready to be a future leader in child neurology? We look forward to meeting you.

As the pediatric teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, Boston Children’s is committed to providing the very best clinical training in child neurology. Preparing physicians for fulfilling careers is part of our core training mission. We offer an unparalleled breadth and depth of exposure to subspecialties in child neurology, one of the world’s most diverse patient populations, and unique opportunities to engage in basic, clinical, and translational neuroscience.

Since its founding in 1967, the Child Neurology Residency Training Program and the Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Resident Training Program at Boston Children’s Hospital has become one of the most desired residency programs in child neurology in the United States.

Throughout this site, you will hear from current residents and recent graduates of the program. We choose our residents carefully — not just based on their academic credentials, but also on their human qualities. Many of our graduates report that it was the people in our program who made their three years in training most worthwhile.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to either one of us if you have any questions.
