Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Residency

Our accredited Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (NDD) Program is closely linked with the Child Neurology Residency and the Child Development Unit to provide a comprehensive educational training experience in the care of children with neurodevelopmental disabilities. Partnerships with UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh and UPMC Magee Womens Hospital provide our residents with opportunities to experience an array of specialized hospital-based and outpatient services and work with a large and diverse faculty. A dedicated, mentored research year also allows our residents to develop a substantial scholarly project and hone investigatory skills within various fields of developmental neuroscience.
