Welcome Message From the Program Director
Our mission is to “train compassionate and professional neurologists equipped with the capacity for excellence in the evaluation and management of patients with neurologic symptoms and diseases in both community and academic practice, with an emphasis on reducing healthcare disparities”.
While we are a large academic center, the program is able to maintain close communication between faculty, staff and residents, supporting an intimate and collaborative learning environment. We look forward to welcoming you to our USC family and continuing the strong tradition of neurological residency training in Los Angeles!
