Neurology residency offers a comprehensive training program over 4 years in management of various neurological disorders. Epilepsy represents a common condition managed by neurologists and forms a core curriculum in the training of neurology residents. We conducted an anonymous survey among the trainees at our neurology program to identify knowledge and treatment gaps and help us modify our training regimens to provide high impact and good quality training to our trainees. We conducted a 35-question survey to determine various aspects of our neurology residents’ training to identify and overcome shortfalls. Our program requirements are rigorous and match up with those of other programs nationwide. We present our findings below to support our assertion that our training program is an excellent one and is able to provide excellent training to ensure comfort in the management of epilepsy.
