Message From The Residency Program Director:                                  

Welcome to the DMC-Wayne State University Neurology Residency Program. The few phrases that I would include for the current and future direction of the Neurology program are ‘exciting changes and cutting edge innovations’ for a bright future. Over the past three decades, the department has grown into a world-class department with top class basic and clinician-scientists as well as clinical faculty rated amongst the best teachers. Training with world-renowned faculty and a hospital system that is listed as the best in Neurology and Neurosurgery in Michigan by The US News & World Report 2015 hospital rankings, enables you to be a confident and competent neurologist, ready to face any clinical challenge.

The DMC-Wayne State University Neurology Residency Program offers residents the opportunity to be trained in a busy, high acuity care for patients who live in the world’s automotive capital, Detroit and the metro Detroit area. We also draw patients from other counties in south-eastern Michigan and Canada, giving a broad ethnic diversity to our patient population. The teaching encompasses and equally broad based neurologic pathology that is primed to provide top class clinical exposure and training.
Residency is both an exciting and challenging time in your life and I strongly feel that each resident should maintain a healthy balance between work and personal interests. The racial diversity of Metro Detroit will provide you with this opportunity to enjoy the theatre, visit museums, auto shows, musicals and concerts. If you are a sports fan, we have the professional teams in all four major sports: hockey, baseball, football, and basketball. The area also offers eclectic cuisine with well-known restaurants representing Middle Eastern, Indian, Ethiopian, Polish, Greek, Italian, Mexican, and French Cuisine. Metro Detroit has some of the best public schools in the country as well as the world renowned Cranbrook and Country Day private school systems. The cost of living is very reasonable, providing exciting socializing opportunities in the “yuppy” towns of Royal Oak and Ferndale.
We consider training residents as a privilege and honor. This is a serious undertaking shaping the next generation of neurologists preparing them for new era of health care reform, professional competency, and most importantly compassionate care. We have an outstanding team led by a dynamic chairman and highly motivated faculty who take teaching residents as a core mission. In other words, your success is our success and few words can make us prouder than hearing about our graduates excelling in their communities providing top class neurologic care.
 Welcome to one of the best neurology programs in the country!
