Saint Louis combines the friendliness of the Midwest and the amenities of a modern city with an historic past. It is not easy in this space to choose even a beginning list of all St. Louis has to offer and do the city justice: Cardinals Baseball, The Symphony, Forest Park, The Arch, Rams Football, Italian Dining on the Hill, Missouri Wine Country and more.

I hope our residency program web page has given you some idea of our approach to training in child neurology and how we hope to combine faculty, patients and facilities to provide an excellent three years of training culminating in competent, caring child neurologists. Building on an over 20 year tradition of outstanding medical education in our department, we take pride in being a place where everybody teaches. We are proud of our graduates and I hope you will consider becoming one of them.
