Neurology Residents' Clinic

The Neurology Clinic is located on the 3rd Floor of the SIU Clinic’s Building, (Moy Building) 751 N. Rutledge, Room 3100 and on the Main Floor of Carol Jo Vecchie Women & Children's Center, 415 N. 9th, Suite 2W94.

Clinics are held daily - Monday-Friday.  Each resident attends clinic two half-days each week.  One half-day is spent in a Continuity Clinic, and one half day is spent in a Subspecialty Clinic.

Residents are excused from attending Continuity Clinic during the Hospice rotation week, and
are excused from attending Subspecialty Clinics during the Psychiatry, Neurosurgery, and elective rotations.

Residents usually see 2 new patients and 4 or 5 follow up patients in each clinic.  The combination changes as needed to accommodate the residents’ patient populations.

Clinics should not be cancelled
Residents are expected to cover each other’s clinic as needed for vacations, interviews, etc.

Exceptions:  If a resident is attending The American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting, sitting for the annual Resident In-service Training Exam (RITE), and for all SIU-designated holidays.

Patients with urgent medical problems are to be evaluated in the Neurology clinic by the Chief Resident at the designated time each day.  In the absence of the Chief Resident, the attending physician on 1st call will see the patients.

Residents follow all patients they see in clinic from their first year of training through the last.  Graduating residents’ patients will be re-distributed among residents still in training.

Patients evaluated by a resident on the inpatient service will follow up with that resident in their respective clinic.
