Message from the Program Director


The St. Joseph’s Hospital Neurology training program will be welcoming our first class of four residents in the summer of 2022.  Located in sunny Stockton, California, St. Joseph’s Hospital is an acute care hospital with 355 beds, and independent 35 bed in-patient psychiatric hospital and outpatient behavioral health center, and facilitates the provision of neurological services to around 1,100 patients yearly. Neurology residents will work a robust inpatient experience at St. Joseph’s Hospital, alongside outpatient experiences at nearby Touro University Medical Group and in Sacramento at Mercy Medical Group and UC Davis Medical Center. Our program will provide you with a comprehensive and diverse neurology training curriculum that serves a much-needed specialty in the heart of California’s Central Valley. 

The St. Joseph’s Neurology Residency Program is part of a multi-year effort to expand graduate medical education at St. Joseph’s Hospital. Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine programs started in 2018, followed by Internal Medicine and Transitional Year programs in 2020, and finally Psychiatry and Anesthesiology programs in 2021. Pending programs also include Urologic Surgery, Orthopedics, and Interventional Radiology. The St. Joseph’s Neurology Residency Program is unique among others in that it provides ample opportunity for collaboration with the other specialties, providing invaluable learning opportunities for residents, research projects and patients alike.

Residents will find that their provision of neurological services will come with the gratitude of the underserved and diverse communities within the Greater Stockton and Sacramento areas. The combination of the urban and rural populations with the tireless efforts of our hospital faculty and staff will yield an excellent patient care experience. Please consider pursuing your Neurology training with our program!
