Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Residency


Becoming an NDD physician takes a minimum of 6 years of post graduate (after graduating from medical school) training.  This training typically includes: 
2 years of ACGME-approved categorical pediatrics program
4 years of NDD residency (1 year of adult neurology, 18 months of child neurology, 18 months of NDD)
You may also be eligible if you have already completed an ACGME pediatrics residency and would like to do subspecialty training.  If you are already in a pediatrics residency program, contact us and your pediatrics program director to learn which rotations you would need to complete during a 2-3 year period to be board-eligible for pediatrics.
