The Neurology Teaching Unit at Vall d’Hebron University Hospital is provided by the Neurology Department with participation from Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Psychiatry, Neurosurgery, Neurophysiology, Neuroradiology, Paediatrics, and A&E.

Healthcare activity in neurology combines writing medical histories, diagnostic data collection, correct use of complementary exploratory procedures, and accurate clinical and aetiologic diagnosis, as well as choosing appropriate palliative treatments. We also emphasise the role of the relationship between resident doctors and patients in the basic areas of Neurology.

A large number of medical conditions and neurological illnesses  can result in critical  emergency situations, such as strokes and lupus. With this in mind, from the second year the duty shifts in neurological emergencies become a key aspect of residents’ work, and are always carried out under supervision. Neurologists are also required to carry out a rotation in neurological outpatient care.

 Research studies  are part of the practical work that neurologists must deepen and develop, with particular emphasis  on ethical competence  when carrying out research.

Neuroscience research should be done under supervision of a tutor , and requires solid training in scientific methodology as well as in bioethics and scientific communication.

Why should I specialise at Vall d’Hebron?

  • Because our expertise and high number of patients underscore the fact that we are a leading hospital for the treatment of neurological disorders.
  • Because we offer the chance to take part in applied research.
  • Because residents have the chance to work under supervision when treating complex neurological conditions, both on the wards and in critical cases in the Accident and Emergency Department.
  • Because residents are encouraged to attend conferences and training sessions to develop new approaches.
