Training

As part of the CDRC commitment to train and educate future generations of clinicians and medical service providers, we encourage clinicians in training, and other students and professionals to visit, shadow, and train within our program.  Please ask your clinician for more information about those who may be providing treatment for your child and family. 

In addition to the information opportunities provided by this CDRC Program, the  Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Residency Program was developed by the joint efforts of the American Board of Pediatrics and the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology to provide a truly interdisciplinary and comprehensive program for training in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities.

In 1999, the American Board of Medical Specialities recognized the new subspecialty examinations given in 2001. This subspecialty provides specialized training for those interested in academic or clinical careers in the evaluation and management of children with a wide variety of neurodevelopment disorders. It also provides opportunities for the development of a research interest that  furthers knowledge of theses disorders and their treatment.

The NDD residency involves a rigorous six-year residency program that combines pediatric and neurological training in the relevant basic sciences with supervised clinical training in the diagnosis and care of children with neurodevelopmental disorders. Upon completion of the residency, the graduate will be eligible for certification in Pediatrics, Neurology with special competence in Child Neurology, and Neurdevelopmental Disabilities.

Please contact us for more information if you are interested in this residency program.
