The Pediatric Neurology rotation is a three-month longitudinal experience for three hours weekly required in the first year of the Child and Adolescent Fellowship. The clinic is at The Mount Sinai Medical Center and is attended by trainees for one half day per week. It is supervised by three board certified Pediatric Neurologists and staffed by neurology residents as well as Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellows. Fellows complete initial neurological examinations and provide follow-up care of previously diagnosed neurological disorders. Additionally they provide psychiatric consultation to the clinic.
The clinic sees pediatric patients from age birth to 21 years with the majority of patients aged between four and 16 years. The clinic provides services predominantly to the Medical Center’s catchment area population. The distribution of patients includes 50 percent African American, 45 percent Latino, and 5 percent Caucasian. Trainees are exposed to a range of disorders including headaches and seizure disorders. Treatments vary with the disorders and include close monitoring of medication and specialty referral. During each session trainees see approximately four patients under the direct supervision of a Pediatric Neurology Attending.
