Five-Year Categorical Program

Through UF’s five-year categorical pediatric neurology residency program, trainees will focus on pediatric residency training for their first two years, then study pediatric neurology for the remaining three years. The program was approved November 2012 by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, or ACGME, the national body that certifies post-medical school education in the U.S. Physicians who complete the program can apply for a license to practice independent pediatric neurology in any state or pursue fellowship opportunities. Graduates will be eligible for certification by both the American Board of Pediatrics and the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and able to treat both adults and children.
