Welcome to the new Riverside Community Hospital/University of California,
Riverside School of Medicine Neurology Residency Program! The RCH/UCR
Neurology Residency Program is a four-year categorical program that matriculates
three residents per year.
We are located in sunny Inland Southern California, just east of Los Angeles
and Orange Counties. RCH is a tertiary regional referral center for stroke,
myocardial infarction, sepsis and trauma. The hospital recently underwent
a major expansion with a beautiful new tower that increased inpatient
capacity from 373 to 478 beds.
Our residency program is affiliated with the University of California,
Riverside (UCR) School of Medicine, home to a strong neuroscience research
program. The program includes a preliminary internship year in internal
medicine followed by three years of advanced training in neurology. RCH/UCR
neurology residents work collaboratively with residents and faculty from
our hospital’s ACGME-approved programs in Family Medicine, Emergency
Medicine, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, General Surgery
and Transitional Year.
What makes our neurology residency program unique is that we are based
in a vibrant community hospital that provides a built-in preliminary medicine
year, allowing us to offer a collegial environment for teaching and learning,
streamlined transition from internship to advanced neurology training
and emphasis on resident wellness with enhanced integration of personal
and professional life.
At the RCH/UCR Neurology Residency Program, residents thrive in our unique
teaching and learning culture that blends the best of our academic medical
center’s neurosciences teaching and research mission with the supportive
and friendly environment of a community hospital. We welcome your support
as we train the next generation of neurologists to serve Inland Southern
