Carle Foundation Hospital offers an integrated approach to teaching the physicians of tomorrow. Residents benefit from innovative healthcare delivery through a multidisciplinary team of specialists. Training at Carle Foundation Hospital gives participants a high level of personalized attention and clinical experience.
The Carle Neurology Residency is a four-year training program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) conducted under the supervision of Program Director, Fadi Mikhail, MD. Established in 2012, the program trains highly proficient and qualified professionals, through progressive levels of responsibility, with the clinical knowledge and diagnostic acumen required of board-certified neurologists.
The program offers a busy clinical practice, both inpatient and outpatient, with a variety of subspecialty rotations. The program features daily noon didactics, weekly multidisciplinary Neuroscience Case Review Conferences, weekly faculty lectures, monthly journal club meetings, as well as M&M conferences every other month.
Our goal is to train competent future neurologists, emphasizing strengths such as problem-solving skills, academic inquisitiveness, detail-oriented evaluations and treatment plans, professionalism and reliability, empathy and compassion, teamwork and collaboration, honesty and integrity, advanced communication skills, and, importantly, resident well-being.
