Child Neurology Residency Program

City Park Denver



Dear Child Neurology Applicant,

Welcome to the Child Neurology Residency at the University of Colorado. We’re thrilled that you’re considering our program and hope you find the answers to your questions about our program on these next few pages. If not, please reach out to any member of our education team (contact information below).

Here in Colorado, you will find a training program that provides exposure to a wide breadth of child neurology while emphasizing resident wellness and an individualized training experience. Many of our graduates go on to additional sub-specialty training, while others choose general child neurology, academic, and private practice across the country. Our program will truly allow you to become whatever type of excellent child neurologist you wish to be.

For the 2024-2025 recruitment season we will be recruiting four residents into our categorical program, five years of training program (pediatrics and child neurology) here at the University of Colorado.

We’re looking for residents with a strong track-record of excellence in their medical training who are great communicators, team-players, and want to help us continue to improve our training program year after year. We strive to have a diverse residency that mirrors our surrounding community. As the only free-standing children’s hospital in Colorado, this encompasses our large metro area of Denver as well as our seven-state catchment area in the Mountain West.

As a resident here, most of your training will take place at the Children’s Hospital Colorado, where you will be led by our large faculty of over 60 child neurologists with expertise in inpatient neurology, critical care, neuro-immunology, stroke, neuro-genetics, epilepsy, neuromuscular disease, neurocutaneous disorders, headache, and general child neurology, among others. During the pediatric training years, as well as during the adult neurology training year, our residents rotate at Denver Health, a large safety-net hospital, providing care to nearly 25% of Denver's population, including the under and uninsured.

We also offer an optional 5-year longitudinal interest track system, allowing incoming residents to pick a specific area of interest including research, global health, community neurology, or medical education. Residents will spend at least four months over their training dedicated to this track, with didactic, clinical, and research components built-in as appropriate.

Thank you for considering our program. We look forward to the opportunity to meet you and learn more about your choice to pursue child neurology.

Teri Schreiner, MD, MPH
Program Director

I came to Colorado from the east coast in 2006 after medical school and have never left! Prior to medical school I earned a master's degree in public health and worked as a healthcare consultant. I conduct clinical research, see patients and hold leadership roles within our section in addition to serving as the child neurology program director and pediatric neuroimmunology fellowship director.  Clinically, my focus is pediatric neuroimmunology, with a particular focus on pediatric onset multiple sclerosis and acute flaccid myelitis. I am married and have twin 6-year-olds in first grade.

Elizabeth Troy, MD
Associate Program Director


I'm originally from south Louisiana but welcome the milder weather, mountain views, and inviting culture of the Centennial State. In 2014, I joined the team of Children's Hospital Colorado as a pediatrics intern and have been here ever since. My clinical focus is outpatient child neurology while my primary academic and research interest is medical education. During my time away from the hospital, my husband, daughter, son, and I enjoy local eats, gravel trails, and mountain towns.

Andra Dingman, MD
Associate Program Director


I am originally from Salt Lake City, Utah, but was a 8-year Californian when I came to Colorado in 2010.  My clinical interests are neurocritical care, and specifically Neonatal Neurology.  In addition to attending on the Neuro-ICU service I see patients in the Neonatal Neurology clinic and oversee the NICU Hospital discharge clinic, a resident clinic for NICU grads that need to establish Neurology follow up care.  I also run a basic-translational research lab studying cellular mechanisms of injury repair after neonatal stroke. 


Laura Konopka, MST
Education Senior Coordinator

I joined the team in 2019 bringing a background in Human Resources and Science Education. Coordinating the residency program is a natural blend of these two areas for me with the added benefit of no grading. After work you can frequently find me in local parks, breweries, museums, and the botanical gardens with my family. Someday soon my sons will be old enough for us to introduce them to the joys of skiing, and hiking in the Rocky Mountains!

Priscilla Harlan
Education Coordinator

I joined the education team in January 2024, after working in Neurology on the Children’s side for over 17 years. Outside of work I spend my time with my husband and our two young kids at the park, library, going out to restaurants, or hanging at home with our dog. I also enjoy watching almost any sport, especially football and hockey.

Medical School: Eastern Virginia

Hobbies: DIY home renovation and design, hiking, sourdough baking, taste testing my husband's homemade cider and wine 

Why Colorado: I was initially drawn to this program because of the exposure to mentors in my subspecialty of interest as well as the large catchment area (meaning I would get to see all kinds of cool pathology). Once I began getting to know the people and the location, I knew this was the right program for me! I also felt strongly that as someone who entered residency with a partner, I needed to find a program and location that would help my not-in-medicine partner thrive, since ultimately he spends more time outside of work than I do. This was absolutely the right program to accomplish that goal! Not only have the program and my fellow residents/fellows been incredibly welcoming to my partner, but Denver has offered all the activities he could want to do in his free time.

Anna Leigh McVicar, MD

Hometown: Henderson, KY

Undergraduate: University of Kentucky

Medical school: University of Louisville

Hobbies: reading, hiking, and camping/mountain weekends/brewery hopping with friends

Why Colorado: It cannot be overstated: THE PEOPLE. Residency can be difficult at times, so having a support system of like minded, hilarious, and kind co-residents makes all the difference. Also, it doesn’t just stop with my co-residents. The faculty within this program and the peds program are some of the most welcoming, intelligent, and supportive people I have ever met. Colorado has given me the autonomy to grow into the physician I want to be, while also maintaining a safe and inviting learning environment where it is okay to make mistakes and ask questions. This was evident to me from day one. Also, having the opportunity to spend your days off in places people normally plan entire vacations for doesn’t hurt.

Lucas Morgan, MD

Hometown: Elkhart, IN

Undergraduate: Butler University

Medical school: Indiana University

Hobbies: playing the piano, hiking, scuba diving

Why Colorado: During my interview/happy hour, it looked like the residents really got along and genuinely enjoyed being around each other. I had an attending in medical school tell me that, "as long as you're around people you like, you can be happy," which I think holds true and is the main reason I'm here! (In addition to the mountains, Red Rocks, etc.)

General Program Overview

Children's Hospital Colorado and the University of Colorado School of Medicine's Departments of Neurology and Pediatrics offer a five-year categorical residency in child neurology. We train 4 residents per year.

The goal of the program is to train physicians in child neurology and prepare them for careers in clinical or academic medicine. As a residency training program, the program curriculum is designed to meet two objectives: to independently and competently attend to the neurological disorders of childhood and to prepare residents to sit for board exams at the completion of the program. The Child Neurology Residency Program at the University of Colorado School of Medicine has been training pediatric neurology residents since the 1960s. Formal ACGME accreditation has been continuous since guidelines for this program were established in 1988.

To date, more than 50 residents have trained here since the program’s inception. All child neurology faculty are certified by the ABPN with special qualification in child neurology and have diverse interests and skills to provide the breadth of teaching necessary. See "Our Patients” tab for more details. The main office and the majority of clinical services are located at Children’s Hospital Colorado, in Aurora, Colorado.

We also provide clinical services through Children’s Hospital Colorado Network of Care centers in Broomfield, Denver, Highlands Ranch, Littleton, Wheat Ridge, Parker, and Colorado Springs. Additional outreach locations include: Durango, Grand Junction, Alamosa, and internationally in Guatemala.

We train physicians to provide compassionate, high quality, evidence-based care to children with neurologic disorders within today’s healthcare environment while supporting resident wellness. Child Neurology graduates are in high demand, both in Colorado and around the country. Residents graduating from our program enjoy continued success in a variety of different areas, including academic positions, fellowship training programs, and private neurology practice. Furthermore, in the past 10+ years, we have a 100% pass rate for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Child Neurology board examination.

Longitudinal Interest Tracks

We currently support four resident interest tracks that span our 5-year training program; research, medical education, global health, and community neurology;

Research Interest Track – this track is designed for residents with a strong basic science background and in interest in pursuing a career as a physician scientist. We support one resident per year to forgo eligibility for general pediatric board certification and complete six months of basic science research during their PGY2 year in lieu of traditional clinical pediatrics rotations. We will match you with a mentor during your PGY1 year and can support additional longitudinal research months in the PGY4-5 years as desired.

Medical Education – this track is designed for residents interested in becoming clinician educators or improving their education skills. Residents will participate in the Medical Educators track as organized by the Pediatrics residency program throughout their five years which includes courses, didactics, journal clubs, and small group sessions. They will also participate in an educational research project or curriculum development project under the mentorship of one of our education faculty within neurology and/or pediatrics

Global Health – this track is designed for residents interested in the practice of medicine and neurology internationally. Residents will participate in the Global Health track through the pediatrics residency program in their PGY1-2 years, including an intro to global health course and an international elective at our sister clinic in Guatemala. Additional international experiences in the PGY3-5 years might include educational or quality improvement rotations in Ethiopia or Tanzania. Residents will complete a scholarly project in global health.

Community Neurology – this track is designed for residents interested in practicing general outpatient neurology either in a private community or primarily clinical academic setting. This track will incorporate a scholarly project related to outpatient neurology as well as outreach experiences at many of our rural locations throughout Colorado, in addition to a didactic component dedicated to general outpatient management and practice.

Night Coverage

Our program currently uses a modified night float system that combines an on-site evening shift with at-home call. Residents in their PGY4 and PGY5 years rotate through our nights system, for a total of 5-6 weeks over the course of each year. Residents in the PGY3 year do a total of 5-6 weeks of night coverage split between the Pediatric and the Adult programs. 

Internat​ional Experie​nces​

The pediatric residency program has an established relationship with Trifinio (FUNSALUD) clinic in Guatemala where our residents can participate in education and research in collaboration with our general pediatrics program and the local training hospital in Guatemala City.

The child neurology program has an established relationship with two hospitals in Uganda.
