The chief residents ensure that a lecture is given each day at noon with lunch provided.  The topics early in the academic year will focus on emergent neurological problems, anatomy, and frequently encountered diagnoses in the clinic.  In January and February the topics will focus on topics that are heavy on the Residency In-Training Exam and on Neurology Board Exams.  In March through June, lecture topics will cover extensive topics throughout Neurology and a few talks focusing on financial planning, setting up a clinical practice, how to decide what to do after residency, and various other topics that are of interest to the residents.  Each year, virtually all clinically relevant topics are covered at least once for the residents.
