Residency Program

Welcome Message From the Program Director

Welcome to the USC/Los Angeles General Medical Center Neurology Residency! Our residency offers premier training in Neurology by combining the best of two main hospitals in an extraordinary location. The residency is based at Los Angeles General Medical Center, the largest safety net hospital in Los Angeles, which provides medical care to patients with an exceptional range of socioeconomic, cultural and clinical diversity. Keck Hospital of USC is directly adjacent to Los Angeles General Medical Center, and serves as a tertiary and quaternary referral center for complex vascular, critical care, and diagnostically challenging cases. Residents also rotate through Rancho Los Amigos Rehabilitation Center and the world-renowned Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) for pediatric neurology training.

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!
