Pediatrics-Child Neurology Residency Pathway

Our Pediatrics-Child Neurology Residency Training Program is a five-year combined program, beginning with two consecutive years of Pediatrics and then three consecutive years of Child Neurology training. The training at UNM Children’s Hospital provides an unparalleled depth of opportunities in Pediatrics and in the various subspecialties of Child Neurology.

A special agreement exists between the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) and the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) whereby an applicant who completes at least two years of accredited training in general comprehensive pediatrics and the neurology training necessary to meet the requirements for certification in neurology with special qualifications in child neurology, fulfills the training requirements of both the ABP and the ABPN and is eligible to take boards in both pediatrics as well as neurology with special qualification in child neurology after the five years of training.

UNM residency programs in pediatrics and child neurology work closely to coordinate interviews and ensure that applicants can interview for both programs in only a single day, which we hope makes it easier on applicants who want to visit us in Albuquerque!

Starting with the 2017-2018 application season, we have changed to a single combined program (AAMC/ERAS program number 1962185C0) needing only a single application.
