Research Opportunities

Child neurology residents are expected to participate in research during their training. The neurology department will try to match residents up with faculty to serve as a research mentor to help them accomplish their projects. Being part of the department of neurology at UNM allows our residents access to consider working with adult neurologists as well as child neurologists on a project. We have access to basic science labs as well as clinical work.

Our division chief, Dr. Phillips, is the medical director at the Mind Research Network , a non-profit lab located on UNM’s campus. The MIND allows for access to numerous advanced imaging techniques as well as multidisciplinary work with physicists, psychologists, and neurologists.
