Abstract

Much of the care provided by practicing neurologists takes place in outpatient clinics. However, neurology trainees often have limited exposure to this setting. Adequate incorporation of outpatient care in neurology training is vital; however it is often hampered by numerous challenges. We detail a number of these challenges and suggest potential means for improvement.
