Additional Benefits for Child Neurology Residents
Professional Conferences: Each resident is provided the funding, time, and opportunity to attend a professional meeting every year. Typically, residents will attend either the Child Neurology Society or American Academy of Neurology National Meeting, often to present their clinical or basic science research. The time off provided for this activity is, of course, in addition to vacation time. Scholarships are often available for senior residents to attend additional national meetings.
Free Institutional Permit: Although a Texas state medical license is not required for residency or fellowship training in Texas, those without a full medical license must obtain a Texas Physician In-Training permit. The fee for training permits is reimbursed by the Department of Pediatrics.
