Residencies in Neurology

The neurology residency program at the University of Utah is a comprehensive three-year program, fully accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), which provides each resident with thorough grounding in neurology as a clinical discipline. In 2011, our residency program successfully became re-accredited by the ACGME through the year 2023.

Fellowships in Neurology

At the University of Utah, our neurology department offers several areas of further specialization including: ACGME-accredited programs, UCNS accredited programs, and programs for which no standard accreditation has been established.

Electives in Neurology

Medical students, students in the physician's assistant program and pharmacy students may rotate on the neurology service. Medical students at the University of Utah School of Medicine have a scheduled one-month rotation in neurology. The rotation includes: two weeks in-patient service, which includes our neuro-intensive care service and two weeks in both general neurology and subspecialty clinics.

Condition-Specific Resources & Training

Faculty with the Department of Neurology have created resources and training specific to several conditions and aspects of neurologic care.

Dizzy School

Headache School

END Institute (EEG Training)

The Dizzy School is brought to you by the Utah Chronic Dizziness Collaborative (UCDC), a​​​ group of therapists and doctors working collaboratively across multiple health care systems to support patients and mobilize healing pathways for chronic dizziness across the Wasatch Front/Salt Lake region. The UCDC was formed in 2021 by Janene Holmberg, PT, (Intermountain Health) and Judith Warner, MD, (Department of Neurology, University of Utah Health). Since then, the UCDC has been working to be a resource for both patients experiencing chronic dizziness and their physicians.

The Headache School is brought to you by the University of Utah Department of Neurology's Headache Outreach Program and the Danielle Byron Henry Migraine Foundation.

Our mission is to educate sufferers of migraine and headaches in a collaborative, supportive environment. Our vision is to eliminate suffering for migraine and headache through education.

The Utah END Institute is a training and educational program for neurodiagnostic technologists. It is a subsidiary of University of Utah Health at the University of Utah Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. Those enrolled in the Institute receive specialized clinical training in recording the electrical activity of the nervous system. Technologists learn to operate various instruments and equipment. They develop skills and techniques to provide the best quality neurodiagnostic studies available. The program and its staff are dedicated to excellence, quality care, and exceptional patient service.
