Program Description

Madigan Army Medical Center (MAMC) offers exceptional residency training in the setting of a close-knit program with the backdrop of the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Our program offers a balance of outpatient and inpatient experiences as residents maintain their own personal outpatient continuity clinic patient panel while having steady exposure to the acute setting. We have a deep diversity of faculty subspecialty expertise, including neurophysiology, neuro-behavioral, neuro-oncology, neuro-ophthalmology, critical care, and pediatrics. There is no neurologic fellowship training at MAMC, so residents benefit from maximal learning opportunities among all subspecialties. We train residents to practice independently upon graduation with an emphasis on procedural competency, including botulinum toxin injections, nerve blocks, lumbar punctures, and more. We provide robust neurophysiology training and practice such that our graduates can perform electromyography (EMG) and can interpret electroencephalogram (EEG) independently. The high amount of operational activity at JBLM ensures a strong foundation in caring for our servicemember population while integration with local civilian training facilities ensures a broad case exposure among highly diverse demographics.
