Welcome from our chair

Program benefits

As a resident at Washington University, you’ll join a collaborative community of neuroscience physicians and scientists dedicated to scientific discovery, to training the next generations of leaders in the field, and to providing compassionate, leading-edge patient care.

We have a culture of family, in which fellow residents become your lifelong friends, and faculty are here to support you.

Mentoring is a priority. You’ll have more than 170 neurology faculty members as mentors who are passionate about teaching and committed to your success.

You’ll treat everything, and a lot of it. We draw patients from all surrounding states and around the country. Our large, diverse patient population — a mix of urban and rural — provides exposure to common and rare conditions.

You’ll gain expertise with confidence through our approach of providing supervised, graded independence.

Collaboration is in our DNA. WashU operates one of the nation’s largest biomedical research enterprises, with international expertise in nearly every area of biomedicine. Scientists routinely work across disciplines to better address complex questions and advance patient care.
