Neurology Training Programs
The Department of Neurology and Neuroscience has over eighty faculty members which participate in the teaching mission. The extensiveness of the faculty provides expert, comprehensive knowledge in the wide spectrum of neuro-subspecialty areas. The environment encourages collegial and collaborative association between the clinical neuropractitioners and neuroscience faculty. Moreover, the department's inventory of innovative, high-end diagnostic equipment allows for optimal and efficient diagnosis of commonly seen or more atypical neurological disorders. The teaching mission focuses on the education of medical students, interns, residents and graduate students, on all aspects of the Neurological systems. Our goals are to:
