Raymond S. Price MD

University of Pennsylvania

I continue to be fascinated by all subspecialties of neurology. I am frequently humbled by the diversity and the variety of neurological presentations. For this reason and despite completing subspecialty neuromuscular training, I choose to see general neurology patients. In 2014 and 2015, I was a member of the winning Neurobowl team at the American Academy of Neurology national meeting, which is a competition assessing the ability of the participants to rapidly and accurately diagnose uncommon neurologic diseases.

I have been heavily involved in neurology residency education and medical student education at the University of Pennsylvania since joining the faculty as an Associate Neurology Residency Director in 2008. In 2012, I transitioned from the Associate Neurology Residency Director to the Neurology Residency Director. Over the last 10 years, I have had the pleasure to participate in the mentorship and training of nearly 100 neurology residents. I teach neurology clinical reasoning to neurology residents and clerkship students when I lead monthly bedside teaching rounds, monthly morning report, and when I co-facilitate bimonthly neuroradiology and neuropathology case conferences. In addition, I give about 20 different didactic lectures to the residents annually. In 2010 and 2016, I was honored to receive the University of Pennsylvania Neurology Resident Teaching award.  Each year, I give three different neurology lectures to the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of medicine students in their Brain and Behavior course. In 2015 and 2016, I was honored to receive the Perelman School of Medicine MS2 Teaching award for most outstanding Brain and Behavior Professor.  I am very interested in increasing medical student interest in neurology, and I speak regularly about careers in neurology for student interest groups here at Penn, as well as other regional medical schools and at the American Academy of Neurology. I also speak at the University of Pennsylvania CME Neurology course for non-neurologists and am the course director for the University of Pennsylvania CME Neurology Board Review Course.  At a national level, I have been a member of the American Academy of Neurology Residency-In-Training Examination Committee since 2013 and am currently the vice-chair of this committee.
