The conference discusses medical, social and pathophysiological aspects of admitted patients. Attendance is required by all residents, medical students and rotating house staff from other departments.

Grand Rounds is a weekly clinical conference that takes place every Friday in conjunction with the Department of Neurosurgery and basic neurosciences. Our Triple "N" (Neurology/Neurosurgery/Neuroradiology) Conference follows Grand Rounds and is a multi-specialty endeavor.

Noon conferences occur daily with organized discussions of subspecialty neurology including stroke, epilepsy, movement disorders, neuromuscular diseases, etc. These conferences are presented to the residents and medical students by the respective experts on these topics. Other multidisciplinary conferences including Tumor Board, Epilepsy Surgery Conference, and Neuro-Immunology Case Conference occur on a weekly basis. The conferences are scheduled by the chief residents, the Residency Program Director and the Chairperson of Neurology.

The department participates and organizes continuing neurological education programs for community physicians and neurologists.
