The HIH provides all physicians in training also with a sound scientific education. At the Center for Neurology (HIH and University Hospital of Neurology), there are two options for training as a specialist in neurology:
The Center for Neurology offers a classic broad academic residency training in neurology. Since a sound knowledge of research is also required for the clinician neurologist, the training includes about ten percent research time. This can be done as part of clinical research projects at the HIH.
If physicians in training show an exceptionally high level of interest in research and science, they can apply for the clinician scientist track for training. If accepted, trainees will have up to 50% of protected time for research projects. The other half of their working time is spent in the clinic. A prerequisite for this structured specialist training is documented scientific interest and activity.
The training to become a clinician scientist can be supported in the framework of a structured research program. Currently, two specific programs exist:
Hertie Center of Neurology
