Adult Neurology Residency Program

The Adult Neurology Residency is a three year program (PGY2-4) designed for trainees who have completed a PGY-1 year in medicine at Stony Brook.  The residency prepares the trainee to take the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology examination for Board Certification in Adult Neurology.  Cara Harth, MD is the program director.

The first year is entirely clinical and is well divided between inpatient and outpatient activities at the Univeristy Medical Center and the Northport VA. The second year is divided between adult clinical consult rotations and a combination of pediatric neurology, psychiatry and electives.  The final year is divided between electives and clinical rotations.  Electives opportunities are numerous.

Stony Brook Internal Medicine Preliminary Year

Stony Brook Neurology is proud to be linked with Stony Brook Internal Medicine, virtually guaranteeing any applicant who matches to Stony Brook Neurology a preliminary spot in Stony Brook Internal Medicine.  There are 5 Neurology slots to correspond with 5 Preliminary slots that are specifically reserved for our Neurology applicants.  You only need to apply to Neurology, you do not need to apply to Internal Medicine; your application and interview to Neurology will suffice as an application and interview for both programs.

Stony Brook Neurology is still an Advanced Program, not a Categorical Program.

In order to make sure that you do indeed get an automatic Preliminary position if you end up matching to Stony Brook Neurology, please make sure to follow the following procedure:

  • Rank our program: Program # 2919180A0 Neurology.
  • On the attached Supplemental List for our program, if you want to make sure you do your preliminary year here Program # 2919140P1 Med-Prelim/Neurology should be listed as your 1st choice.
  • You still have the option of ranking other preliminary programs before Stony Brook
  • You could choose to not rank the Stony Brook Med-Prelim/Neurology program at all, but then you would lose the guarantee to do your preliminary year here.
