Pediatrics & Child Neurology


The University of Michigan Health System provides funding for an integrated five- year training program in Pediatrics and Pediatric Neurology that leads to eligibility for board certification in Pediatrics and Child Neurology. We offer two positions each year.

The first two years are devoted to Pediatric residency training; the curriculum is designed to meet American Board of Pediatrics requirements and will lead to eligibility for Pediatric certification at the end of the final (fifth) year of training.

The University of Michigan offers a broad and diverse academic environment. There are many teaching conferences in the Departments of Neurology and Pediatrics. There are excellent established training programs for physicians interested in clinical and basic research.

The three-year program is under the guidance of Steven Leber, M.D., Ph.D., Program Director. Faye Silverstein, M.D. is the Division Director. Dr. Leber was honored with the Blue Bird Circle Training Award from the Child Neurology Society and Professors of Child Neurology, recognizing outstanding performance by a child neurology training director.
