We are proud to have our PGY1 interns complete their internship year in the Department of Medicine at BIDMC.

BIDMC is a major teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School and is recognized internationally for its research and clinical care. Our original hospitals, New England Deaconess and Beth Israel, also share a common narrative as leaders in medical education and serving as a home for underserved populations.

As a Neurology Resident at BIDMC, you will see both rare neurological disorders in addition to bread and butter clinical syndromes. A hallmark of our program is the personalized approach to resident development. Over the course of your years with us, you will feel confident independently diagnosing and managing a wide breadth of neurologic diseases. Importantly, our program aims to support and foster your unique career goals. We love the range of interests our residents have. We have established a curriculum for physician educators with opportunities to teach Harvard Medical School Anatomy Boot Camp and the Mind, Brain, Behavior module. There is an R25 program available for those interested in a research-oriented career, and a superb rotation in Zambia for those pursuing global health. Many of our graduates continue in academia and match to fellowships at top institutions of their choice, including BIDMC. Please visit our alumni page to see the scope of our graduates’ careers.

In addition to innumerable opportunities available through BIDMC and the Harvard Community, what truly makes our program unique, is the collegiate and collaborative nature of the program. This allows you to explore and foster your skills in a supportive environment. We are invested in your success and well-being. The size of our program, 8 residents per year, promotes a familial working environment conducive for growth and fosters long lasting relationships between residents, fellows, and attendings
