Welcome Letter

Welcome to the Neurology Program

Welcome and thank you for your interest in our categorical four-year Adult Neurology Residency Program at the USD Sanford School of Medicine in Sioux Falls, SD

Although we are a newly accredited program, our faculty has extensive experience in teaching residents from other programs, such as Psychiatry and Internal Medicine, who complete mandatory neurology rotations with us. We also have several years of experience in teaching medical students. We have faculty who are fellowship trained and/or board-certified in Vascular Neurology, Neuro-critical Care, Neuroendovascular Surgery, Epilepsy, Headache, Neuromuscular Diseases, Multiple sclerosis, Clinical Neurophysiology and Pediatric Neurology. Please contact me Nessim Amin, MD or our program administrator Jacki Gross, if you have any questions regarding our residency program and interview process.
