We offer a linked preliminary training year in the Cedars-Sinai internal medicine program for any candidates who match in the Cedars-Sinai advanced neurology residency training program. During the application period, please apply to the advanced neurology program only. The med-prelim/neurology program is not listed on Electronic Residency Application System.
All applicants invited to interview for neurology will automatically be scheduled to meet with the Internal Medicine program director and learn about the linked med-prelim/neurology program and its requirements on the same day.
At the time of ranking, once the Cedars-Sinai advanced neurology program has been selected, the med-prelim/neurology will be visible for ranking. Please note that you must rank both Cedars-Sinai neurology and med-prelim/neurology programs separately on the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). The neurology program should be listed as your PRIMARY ROL and med-prelim/neurology as SUPPLEMENTAL ROL.
Please review your entries carefully to ensure that you have listed the correct preliminary training program (1030140P1) and not one of the other Cedars-Sinai Department of Medicine training programs.
