Raymond S. Price, MD, FAAN
Professor of Clinical Neurology
I have been the Director of the Neurology Residency Program for the University of Pennsylvania since 2012. I have had the pleasure to participate in the mentorship and training of more than 150 neurology residents. The vast majority of these residents are now in faculty positions at academic medical institutions and universities across the country. During their training, I teach residents in a variety of clinical settings, weekly in their outpatient continuity clinic and on the wards at least 8 weeks per year. I give more than 20 different didactic lectures to the residents each year in addition to monthly bedside teaching rounds, morning report, and facilitate neuroradiology and neuropathology case conferences. I am particularly interested in resident wellness, improving the efficiency of education delivery during residency and formal training in non-clinical domains, such as career development. In 2010 and 2016, I was honored to receive the University of Pennsylvania Neurology Residents teaching award. In 2018, I received the American Academy of Neurology Training Director recognition award.

Description of Educational Expertise

I have been a member of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Residency-In-Training Examination Committee since 2013 and am currently the chair of this committee. At the AAN annual meeting, I speak in multiple resident-focused educational sessions including the neuroanatomy and neuropharmacology courses. I am a member of the AAN Fellowship timeline task force, which is facilitating discussions to standardize the fellowship application process across all subspecialties. I am also a member of the American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine neuromuscular fellowship oversight committee. I co-host AAN trainee trivia, which shows interesting neurologic cases virtually on a monthly basis. I am the Director of the University of Pennsylvania Neurology Board Review continuing medical education course.

Description of Clinical Expertise

I continue to be fascinated by evaluating and teaching about all subspecialties of neurology. In the outpatient setting, I see general neurology patients both in my own clinic and in resident clinic. I also perform NCS/EMGs. In the inpatient setting, I am the co-division chief for the neurohospitalist division seeing patients on both our general inpatient and consult services. In 2014 and 2015, I was a member of the winning Neurobowl team at the American Academy of Neurology national meeting, which was a competition assessing the ability of the participants to rapidly and accurately diagnose uncommon neurologic diseases. In 2016, I was selected by my peers to the University of Pennsylvania Academy of Master Clinicians. In 2018, I was one of 2 faculty to be named Clinical Practice of the University of Pennsylvania Provider of the Year. For the past 4 years, I have been the course co-director for the American Neurological Association Clinical Logic session, which focuses on how to approach challenging clinical cases. I am the co-author of the textbook, Clinical Decision Making in Neurology, which provides over one hundred algorithms to provide neurologic care based on symptoms or suspected diagnosis.
