Message from the Chair
The Department of Neurology is committed to three equally valued and interrelated missions: delivery of quality patient care, generating knowledge from research that will alleviate human suffering through prevention and treatment of disease, and educating physicians in accordance with highest professional standards.
We have an incredible team of neurologists, scientists, nurses, social workers, neuropsychologists, therapists, trainees, and staff who are singularly focused on making a difference in the lives of people with neurological disorders. Whether it is to partner with patients and families to treat symptoms and ease suffering or to be the beacon of hope and optimism for the future, we aim to treat every patient like our only patient. Whether it is to passionately pursue cures for stroke or Parkinson’s Disease or to advance our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease or brain cancer, we seek the truth to benefit others. Whether it is to train physicians to become neurologists or to train neurologists to become scientists, we aim to create an environment of creativity, discovery and fulfillment.
We have completed a strategic planning process and we are well on our way of making our vision become a reality. I invite you to browse these pages to learn about each of our faculty, our clinical programs, our ongoing research efforts, and our training programs.
