Residency in Neurology


The residency will be for a period of 3 years starting at the latest on 29 august 2022. The Alfort residency is an accredited conforming program in neurology. The unit consults a mix of medical and surgical cases (caseload is around 1000 cases a year), has access to on site large and exotic animal clinics. The hospital offers onsite radiography, ultrasound and a 64-slices helical CT. MRI and scintigraphic modalities are available in the close vicinity. Other facilities include electrophysiology (EMG, NCV, EP and EEG) and an onsite pathology service. A neuromuscular research laboratory linked to the neurology unit offers histological diagnosis on nerve and muscle biopsies. The rotations include general internal medicine (first year) and specialized activities in neurology and neurosurgery (from first to third year) in addition to on duty emergency periods.


The successful applicant will join a team composed by one senior neurologist, a first year neurology resident and an intern. The resident will have daily contact with other clinical disciplines including anesthesia, behavior, cardiology, diagnostic imaging, dermatology, exotic animals, internal medicine, intensive care, ophthalmology, pathology, reproduction, and surgery.


The residency program, structured according to guidelines of the ECVN, will focus on neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neuropathology, neuroimaging, clinical neurology and neurosurgery. The resident will be required to take a major responsibility for animals with neurological and neurosurgical disease, be involved in clinical research, participate to rounds/journal clubs/congresses, and be involved in clinical teaching (interns, 5th and 6th year students). The residency is aimed at providing advanced training for the European board certification in Neurology.
