Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Adult Neurology Residency Program at the UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences.
The UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences Neurology Residency in Fargo, N.D., is a four-year categorical program. Since our program is categorical, residents who match with our program will automatically be granted preliminary positions in our Transitional Year Residency Program. Fully accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education, our residency program is based out of Sanford Health in Fargo, N.D.
