learning together educating the next generation of brain injury researchers and clinicians
The UF BRAIN Center is closely affiliated with PhD and postdoctoral programs spanning a variety of departments and institutions as well as multiple key fellowship and residency programs that share intensive research and training in brain injury.
affiliated Fellowship programs
This one to two year program involves intensive clinical and research training in the fields of sports neurotrauma and traumatic brain injury.
This clinical program allows fellows to enhance their clinical skills by seeing patients with neurocognitive deficits from diseases with our attending physicians.
This training program provides opportunity for fellows to manage patients with life-threatening neurological and neurosurgical critical illnesses.
Two positions 1-year positions are available, one with EEG/Epilepsy emphasis and the other with EMG/neuromuscular emphasis. Both positions are accredited by the ACGME.
This 1-year program includes training in direct patient care at the adult neuromuscular clinic, pediatric neuromuscular clinic, MDA and ALS multidisciplinary clinics or inpatient neuromuscular consults at UF Health Shands Medical Center and at the Randall VA Medical Center.
This 1-year curriculum provides the fellow with teaching and abundant exposure to athletic teams and events at the University of Florida and greater North Florida area.
The neuroscience department offers postdoctoral training opportunities in numerous areas, including neurodegenerative disease, brain aging, learning and memory, brain trauma/stroke and substance use disorders.
pre & postdoctoral fellowship
Breathing Research & Therapeutics (BREATHE)
This training program combines strength in basic science, translational research and a supportive environment provided by the BREATHE Center. Fellows will develop a greater understanding of and treatments for neuromuscular disorders that compromise breathing and airway defense.
This 2-year program seeks to prepare postdoctoral fellows for the practice of professional psychology consistent with the philosophy embodied in the scientist-practitioner model of training.
Affiliated Residency programs
Residents receive broad exposure to the full spectrum of clinical neurology, from the rapid-fire assessment of an acute stroke to the complex longitudinal relationship of patients with progressive neurodegenerative diseases.
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
The program's mission is to train and develop physiatrists who will be experts in value-based evaluation, diagnosis, and management of neuromusculoskeletal and disabling conditions and serve as leaders in directing rehabilitation and recovery and in preventing injury and disease.
UF EM Residency team’s mission is to expose trainees to the broadest span of presentations, depth of acuity, and healthcare disparities that exist in Emergency Medicine. The residency team serves as guide whose purpose is to train residents in the vanguard practice of EM, bring evidence based critical thinking and interventions to the bedside, and to do so with compassion.
The overall goal of the UF Family Medicine Residency Program is to provide a superior training experience that emphasizes the development of excellent family physicians who possess an excellent knowledge base coupled with the patient care experience necessary to enter into the environment of modern medical care models with confidence and competence.
The program's mission is to expand the frontiers of clinical care, education, and research in the field of pediatric neurology while striving for excellence, creativity, and innovation. The goal is to provide an outstanding educational environment for the next generation of child neurologists.
This 7-year program allows trainees to care for patients with brain tumors, neurovascular disorders, complex spine problems, epilepsy, children’s neurological illnesses, movement disorders, and trauma to the brain and spine from our nationally and internationally recognized faculty.
Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation
The program's goal is to promote self-directed, life-long learning skills. In this residency program, emphasis is placed on assisting each resident in gaining basic knowledge, clinical and surgical skills and then help them apply these principles in practice.
