Welcome to the neurology education program at the University of Kentucky. We are proud of a long tradition of excellence in training in neurology that started in the 1960s under the direction of the department's founder and first chairman, Dr. David B. Clark. Since then, education has remained the centerpiece of our academic program, and every successive chairman, program director, and faculty has continued and built on Dr. Clark's commitment to producing outstanding physicians with good neurological skills.  We have established unique educational opportunities through outreach facilities and international collaborations. We offer LCME accredited educational programs for third and fourth-year medical studentsACGME accredited residency programs in neurology and child neurology, and post-residency clinical fellowships in epilepsy, geriatrics, headache, neuropsychology, movement disorders, and vascular neurology.  Please allow us the opportunity to introduce you to our programs.
