Our program is dedicated to fostering the diverse academic research interests of our residents, knowing they will soon become the future leaders of Neurology and have significant impact in our field. We are fortunate to be part of an incredibly dynamic and stimulating environment where clinical practice and research fuel each other. Clinician investigators at BWH at MGH lead some of the top-funded programs at our institutions and serve as phenomenal mentors for residents exploring burgeoning interests in clinical, translational, basic science research. Moreover, there are rich collaborations across many first-class research institutions in the Boston area.
We work hard to help our residents find exceptional research mentors that are best suited to their interests. Every year, we have a series of conferences where our residents hear short presentations about ground-breaking work being done in the laboratories in virtually every field in neurology. We have numerous interdisciplinary conferences focused on the very latest clinical advances fora specific neurologic disease and the scientific discoveries that may soon transform the care we deliver. During quarterly meetings with house leaders and program directors, we make sure that each resident knows how to successfully navigate the landscape of available research opportunities.
All of our residents receive travel funds to attend neurologic conferences such as the AAN and other subspecialty meetings. In addition, we are very grateful to Dr. Anne Young and several former residents for generously contributing to the Beverly Mahfuz Endowed fund, which provides additional support for residents to attend conferences where they present their research.
