Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

2 Scopus citations


Residency education in neurology is at the crossroads. Change is imminent. Health care reform, economics, managed care, expanding knowledge base in neurology, shrinking applicant pools, and ill-defined borders between the specialties combine to require neurology to define itself more clearly and to develop the model neurologist for the future. Explicit competencies for neurologists must be established. Training programs must be redesigned to ensure that those specific competencies are taught and mastered before the completion of the residency. Eleven points are offered as a framework for training neurologists for the 21st century.
