Welcome to our neurology residency program!
I have had the distinct honor and privilege to work with an outstanding group of clinicians, educators, and administrators as well as similarly gifted neurology trainees for many years as program director. While it is a daunting responsibility to educate and impart the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to become, not only competent, but extraordinary clinical neurologists, we all welcome this challenge and relish the opportunity to do so.
We enjoy the educational resources necessary to accomplish our mission by providing care in a tertiary care community setting with staff and patients of various cultural, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds while at the same time offering the most advanced technological resources. In spite of our small program, our residents have showcased their academic talents by presenting their research projects at multiple regional, national, and international scientific venues and with publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals and book chapters.
We are looking for well-rounded individuals who seek nothing short of excellence in clinical practice and who share our enthusiasm to actively seek new knowledge, who are compassionate and whose goal reflects our motto to keep “Patients First”, who thrive in a team setting, and who are passionate about taking ownership of their patients. These characteristics will ensure that you will not only become a competent practitioner of your trade, but an extraordinary one.
We are proud to have sparked and nurtured the interest of our residents in a wide variety of neurological subspecialties by having approximately 90% of our graduates pursue fellowship training in such diverse areas as vascular neurology, interventional neuroradiology, neuroimmunology/MS, neuromuscular disease, neurophysiology/EMG, movement disorders, epilepsy, sleep medicine, pain management, neuroophthalmology, and neurooncology. Furthermore, they have accomplished this at cutting edge academic centers such as Brigham and Women’s, Hopkins, Cleveland Clinic, Weill Cornell, Case Western, University of Pittsburgh, Washington University in St. Louis, University of Texas Southwestern, Duke, and NYU, to name a few.
If you share our passion, I encourage you to research our program in more depth at this web site, by contacting our superb program coordinator, Belinda Ortiz, and ultimately by applying to our program.

Cleveland Clinic Florida
The Cleveland Clinic Florida Neurology Residency Program, accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), accepts applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and participates in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). As an Advanced program, we are in the process of transitioning to a three resident per year program so that currently we have 3 residents at the PGY-2 level, 2 at the PGY-3 level, and 2 at the PGY-4 level. One more resident will be added per year over the next 2 years in order to completely fill our total resident complement of 3 per year.
The required first year in Internal Medicine is also offered at Cleveland Clinic Florida. Candidates applying to our program will automatically match with our preliminary (PGY1) internal medicine program provided this is chosen as an option in your application through the NRMP. Since these are dedicated preliminary positions for our neurology program, they are only offered to our neurology-matched candidates and cannot be filled without a Neurology match in our program. Please note that it is not necessary to arrange a separate interview with our internal medicine program in order to qualify for these dedicated preliminary positions.
There are a wide variety of regular conferences and lectures scheduled on a daily basis Monday through Friday. These include but are not limited to Grand Rounds, Emergency Neurology, Subspecialty lectures, Neuroradiology, Ethics, Psychiatry, CPC, Chairman Rounds, Journal Club, RITE review sessions, Continuum sessions, and Basic Neuroscience. The residents are responsible for preparing and presenting some of these lectures or conferences. In addition, residents are also responsible for completing regular COMET on-line and other web-based learning modules to complement their medical knowledge and to help them acquire the skills and attitudes necessary to practice without direct supervision.
Resident Program Wellness
Neurology Residency Program - Cleveland Clinic Florida
We recognize that neurology is one of the top two medical specialties most impacted by physician burnout.
Accordingly, a variety of resources are available to our residents for the purpose of promoting resident wellness and combating burnout:
- Psychological support and counseling at no charge
- Assigned Resident Advisors from PGY-1 who serve as sources of guidance and mentoring throughout their training.
- Orientation reception designed to promote a collegial environment where the new residents interact with each other, already established residents, and staff to welcome them to our institution.
- Yearly Resident Appreciation Week offering activities and events that highlight our appreciation and recognition for their contribution not only to our institution but also to those we serve.
- Doctor’s Day events hosted by the Education Center for all programs in Cleveland Clinic to attend and participate.
- Periodic staff/resident luncheon events designed to promote interaction in a fun and non-stressful environment.
- Neuroscience Institute Christmas Party in an appealing social venue for not only staff and residents but also their families.
- 6 Neurology applicant Dinner events during the fall/winter in local upscale restaurants where not only the residents but also the staff interact with our applicants to showcase the close working relationship our staff enjoys with our residents
- Periodic Program Director meetings with the residents designed at least in part for residents to vent any frustrations or concerns they may have with the program or institution.
- Lectures on resident well-being and fatigue mitigation strategies as part of our Academic Lecture Series.
Resident of the Year Awards voted on by the staff and presented at graduation ceremonies recognizing, among other things, those residents who have overcome significant personal, cultural, and professional obstacles in order to excel.
The Cleveland Clinic Learning Center offers residents educational modules on Safety, Communication, Fatigue Mitigation, Chemical Dependency, Disruptive Behavior, Sexual Misconduct, Diversity and Inclusion, our Culture of Safety, Physician Impairment, Fire Prevention, Crime Prevention, Infection Prevention, Health Services, Radiation Safety, MRI Safety, Back Safety, Diversity and Inclusion, Fluoroscopy & Radiation Protection, MRI Safety, HIPAA, Patient Safety, Bloodborne Pathogen Exposure Protection, TB Exposure Prevention, Professionalism and self-assessment.
On-Line Resources from the American Academy of Neurology (https://www.aan.com/tools-and-resources/academic-neurologists-researchers/program-and-fellowship-director-resources/residency-program-wellness/) and other sources outlined in their Program Manual and designed to promote wellness and prevent burnout.
First Year of Residency (PGY1)
The ACGME requires that the PGY1 year be spent in an ACGME or Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada-accredited general internal medicine training program. For more details regarding the required rotations during this year, the reader is referred to the ACGME Program Requirements for Graduate Medical Education in Neurology posted in the ACGME website.
First Year of Neurology Residency (PGY2)
The majority of this year is spent in direct patient care, most of which is in the inpatient setting where the resident is exposed to a wide variety of general neurology patients as either primary neurology admissions or consultations in a wide variety of settings including the stroke unit, the epilepsy monitoring unit, intensive care unit (ICU), and emergency room. The inpatient team consists of a neurology attending, a senior neurology resident, junior neurology resident, and occasionally a rotating medical and/or psychiatry resident and several medical students. Teaching/hospital rounds are held 7 days/week, 365 days/year. The on-call schedule averages every 4th night for PGY2 and PGY3 residents. PGY4 residents do not have a regular call schedule, but rather fill in when PGY2 and PGY3 residents are not able to take call due to rotations in Cleveland or due to vacation or absence for whatever other approved reason. Cleveland Clinic Florida uses a module system with 13 four-week modules making up the academic year. In total, a PGY2 resident has 8 inpatient modules, 2 general neurology outpatient modules, 2 EEG/Epilepsy (outpatient/inpatient) modules, and 1 neuroradiology module. While in the inpatient service there is a daily review of neuroradiological imaging studies with neuroradiology staff support if necessary. Longitudinal outpatient clinic is scheduled one-half day per week with a staff preceptor who will work with the resident throughout the three years of training.
Second Year of Neurology Residency (PGY3)
As a senior PGY3 resident, 4 modules are spent in the inpatient service, 3 ½ in the outpatient service, 3 in EMG, 2 in Neuropathology with Mondays spent in Neuro-ophthalmology, and ½ module in Sleep Medicine. Each outpatient rotation beyond the first year is spent in a subspecialty service including movement disorders, neuromuscular disease, multiple sclerosis, and cognitive/behavioral neurology. The Neuropathology and Neuro-ophthalmology rotations take place at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Ohio.
Third Year of Neurology Residency (PGY4)
As a senior PGY4 resident, 3 1/2 modules are spent in Pediatric Neurology, 3 ½ modules in electives, 2 modules in the outpatient service, 1 module in Psychiatry, 1 module in Neurosurgery, and 2 inpatient module. The Pediatric Neurology rotation takes place at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami; the Psychiatry at University Hospital and Medical Center in Tamarac.

Graduate Testimonial – Pirouz Piran, M.D. (Class of 2018)
Pirouz Piran, MD
Vascular Neurology Fellow
The more I advance in my career as a neurologist the more I realize how lucky I was to be trained at Cleveland Clinic Florida. This neurology residency program made all my dreams come to reality. Not only I was able to match at Weill Cornell and Johns Hopkins for my vascular neurology and neuro-critical care fellowships, I had the opportunity to be at a world-class hospital, working alongside and learning first hand from well-rounded neurologists like Dr. Salgado and Dr. Galvez. My four years at CCF was amongst the best days of my life and prepared me well enough to become a competent neurologist. The diversity and the variety of neurological cases that I encountered during my training made me very comfortable approaching complex and challenging neurologically ill patients on day to day basis.
Graduate Testimonial – Subin Mathew, M.D. (Class of 2018)
Subin Mathew, MD
Emory University School of Medicine
It’s hard to entirely write down my experience at Cleveland Clinic Florida in a small paragraph. For 4 years, CCF was my home and the staff my family. Looking back, I enjoyed and miss every moment I spent at CCF. The training was exemplary and the teaching staff - world-class. What I highly appreciate was the ease at approaching the teaching staff at any time of the day/night and how collegial they were. I’m sure I have entered Dr. Salgado’s office like 10,000 times and in spite of how busy he was, he attended to my questions, whether issues related to patients or personal. No words can express and no act of gratitude can relay for everything Dr. Salgado has done for me and the program. Having friendly subspecialists in all fields of neurology and an amazing neuro-interventional, neurosurgery and neuroradiology staff always came handy. We had an interesting array of high volume complex cases and we became comfortable with managing critically ill neurology patients early on in our training, which was one of the highlights of my program. It has trained me to be strong and prepared me to do my fellowship at a busy neurocritical care unit. I have to especially thank Dr. Galvez, our charismatic leader/chairman for all the free books, lectures, interesting clinical scenarios and years of experience he has shared with us. I can go on thanking and appreciating all my amazing mentors, teaching and ancillary staff. Last but not least, my favorite person- Belinda, always on top of her game and helped us with all the administrative issues. I’m grateful to have been trained at an amazing place, with people I dearly love
