Overview: Training & Education

The HealthONE Neurology Residency Program is built upon an extremely firm foundation of well-trained, successful private practice neurologists practicing both in and around one of the most successful Neuroscience centers in the Rocky Mountain region, Swedish Medical Center. The inpatient neuro-hospitalists and stroke physicians in conjunction with HealthONE’s Swedish Medical Center have helped provide care to a host of patients with varying acute neurological conditions.

Both the neurologists and Swedish Medical Center have set the bar for some of the fastest, if not the fastest, door-to-needle times in the country and quite possibly the world which ultimately translates into improved outcomes in patients presenting with acute ischemic stroke.

In addition, the inpatient neurology service receives greater than 750 neurology transfers each year (and growing) from outside hospitals for ischemic stroke, intra-parenchymal hemorrhage, subarachnoid hemorrhage, status epilepticus, Guillain-Barre syndrome, myasthenic crisis, CNS infections, CNS tumors, and autoimmune encephalitides. Their focus, and thus the backbone of this residency, is evidence-based medicine rooted in real-world application. They are widely recognized and well-respected in the neurosciences community. 

The HealthONE Neurology Residency Program also boasts an exceptional outpatient neurology experience with opportunities and exposure to various subspecialties of neurology including:

  • Epileptology/EEG
  • Movement disorders
  • Demyelinating diseases
  • Neuromuscular diseases
  • Neuro-oncology
  • Neuro-ophthalmology
  • Headache clinic
  • Concussion
  • General and Pediatric Neurology

With multiple clinics located across the Denver Metro region, the outpatient neurology service has become one of the most prestigious neurology practices in the local community and beyond lending itself to high volumes and an excellent place to train as a neurology resident. 

Additionally, the program offers a diverse and robust didactic curriculum to help augment the clinical experience of the neurology resident. Didactic experiences include neurovascular conferences with world-class neuro-radiologists, journal club, research committee, peer review, case conference with intermittent expectation for resident teaching, ongoing lecture series (i.e. emergency neurologic series), grand rounds, and morning rounds. 

Regardless of the neurology resident’s learning style or background, this neurology residency program will provide the neurologists of tomorrow with the education and clinical experiences they need to be successful.
