to the Massachusetts General Hospital Child Neurology Residency Program

Thank you for your interest in the Massachusetts General Hospital Child Neurology Residency Program. We are committed to nurturing future leaders in child neurology.  Our program offers a first-class training with both strong clinical foundations and opportunities to participate in cutting-edge research.  Once equipped with these foundational tools, our trainees have optimal flexibility in their pediatric neurology years to tailor their education to their interests- through 11 months of elective time.  

Our Strength is in our Numbers

Our close-knit department enables you to work directly with our faculty- fostering mentorship, careers and collaboration.

As a future pediatric neurologist, your home is in our child neurology department but you will also benefit from our collaborative relationships with the Pediatrics Department and within the Neurology Department. Through the 5 years of your experience at MGH you will get to know the faculty and trainees in many other specialties whom you will call your peers and colleagues.

The Child Neurology Division is part of the MGH Neurology Department, which consists of more than 230 physicians and scientists and is consistently ranked among the top four neurology departments in the United States, according to the U.S. News and World Report.

Our Strength is in our History

MGH has provided comprehensive care for children since 1821 and for patients with neurological diseases across the lifespan since 1872. Many firsts in terms of describing neurological syndromes and treating neurological diseases have occurred within our walls.

Our Strength is in our Future

Throughout its almost 200-year history of providing care for children and for those with neurological diseases, MGH has always been forward thinking- pursuing innovative research and promoting novel career paths in science and discovery.

Our division of child neurology is united by a common purpose of providing outstanding care and finding new treatments and cures that will reduce and ultimately eliminate the devastating impact of neurological disorders on our patients and their families

It is an exciting time to enter the field of child neurology! New treatments, technologies, and insights into disease pathophysiology are constantly being discovered. We are excited to participate in the training of our future leaders!

Sincerely yours,

Kevin Staley
