PGY 5: The PGY 5 year is reserved for elective rotations planned at the discretion of the resident with input from the division chief.

The remaining eight months can be used for a variety of electives within neurology such as neurophysiology, spasticity, epilepsy, neuromuscular, or sleep medicine.  Through Emory University School of Medicine, rotations with other subspecialties, such as neurosurgery, genetics and neuro-oncology, can be arranged. The residents are encouraged and supported in their efforts to pursue original research projects, which can be completed during research electives.
