Neurology Elective Courses

We are delighted that you are interested in joining the Department of Neurology at Johns Hopkins as a medical student for either a sub-internship or a clinical elective in Neurology.  We have experiences in either Adult of Pediatric Neurology for visiting students.

In order to facilitate your experience with us, here is a brief introduction to the organization of our clinical activities.

Visiting medical students can rotate on Adult Neurology service at either the East Baltimore campus or Johns Hopkins Bayview campus, or can rotate in Pediatric Neurology service or Stroke service at the East Baltimore campus.  We encourage our visiting students to spend time on both inpatient/consult service and in the outpatient clinic setting to get a variety of experiences. We allow visiting medical students to “build their own experience” by choosing the clinics and services they wish to participate in, and we encourage visiting students to choose a wide range of specialty areas during their rotation including stroke, movement disorders, headache, or sleep to name a few.  

All visiting medical students spend a total of four weeks working closely with the Johns Hopkins faculty and residents on these services.  While on each service, the visiting medical student will participate in all conferences and rounds.

If you are interested in completing a clinical elective, please contact the registrar’s office at [email protected] to complete your application.  

For Pediatric Neurology specifically, feel free to contact Dr. Jessica Nance, Medical Student Director, or Dr. Eric Kossoff, Pediatric Neurology Residency Director.
