Graduate Career Paths

Beyond residency, we position our trainees for excellence in Fellowship training and career advancement.

Over the last 10 years, two-thirds of our residents have remained at Penn to complete their Fellowship training. In many cases, these Fellowship programs combine further clinical experience with research activities. Support for Fellowship research comes from both R25 Fellowship support as well as several training grants held by faculty within Neurology.

The remaining one-third of our residents elect to leave Penn for their Fellowship and choose positions at top institutions across the country. Over the past ten years, these institutions have included Partners, UCSF, Wash U, Michigan, NYU, NIH, Johns Hopkins, Columbia, and Stanford.
