Michigan State University/Sparrow Health System
neurology RESIDENcy program
Welcome to the Neurology Residency home page for Michigan State University
and Sparrow Health Systems. Our residency prides itself on having brought together
an enthusiastic group of physician scientists and clinical educators to mentor
young neurologists seeking their training at Michigan State University. Our
residency is a broadly based training program, combining the best of an outstanding
Capital City community sized hospital with all the academic and social advantages
found within a Big-Ten University environment.
This unique combination provides residents with exposure to challenging clinical
cases, research, private practice, and academic neurology within the framework
of a Big-Ten town and social scene. We have outstanding neurobiology clinical
and neuro-epidemiology research, which will be explored with you by extraordinary
Residents will be encouraged to develop either a clinical focus or an
academic/research focus through the initial stages of their residency
Accelerated clinical opportunity and independence will also be highlighted
during the middle portions of the residency. The University and private
faculty during the residency's last year will help direct and polish
for fellowship and successful professional lives.

Major influences of the Department include: geriatric neurology, movement
disorder, stroke, neuro-ophthalmology, a National MS Society clinic and a Muscular
Dystrophy Association clinic along with other, standard general and subspecialty
neurology clinics important for a broad based foundation in neurology. With
the residency being at one of the country's great universities, a tradition
of working hard but playing hard is also encouraged both on campus and off.
