Neurology education: current and emerging concepts in residency and fellowship training.
This article discusses the current and future state of neurology training. A priority is to attract sufficient numbers of qualified candidates for the existing residency programs. A majority of neurology residents elects additional training in a neurologic subspecialty, and programs will have to be accredited accordingly. Attempts are being made to standardize and strengthen the existing general residency and subspecialty programs through cooperative efforts. Ultimately, residency programs must comply with the increasing requirements and try to adapt these requirements to the unique demands and realities of neurology training. An effort is underway to establish consistent competency-testing methods.
