The neurology residency program is a part of graduate medical education (GME) at Washington University. The guidelines that govern all ACGME accredited programs within Washington University, Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospital are set forth by the GME Consortium. Guidelines for residency training are reviewed internally by the GME committee, which also coordinates educational and policy guidelines for all postgraduate education at Washington University, assuring that programs fully comply with local, state and federal mandates.
