About Dr. Khan

Jaffar Khan is a board certified Neurologist with added board certifications in Vascular Neurology, Electrodiagnostic Medicine and Clinical Neurophysiology. He completed his Neurology residency in 1997 at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics and during his last year in the program he served as the Chief Resident. He then completed a one-year fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology at Emory University, and joined the Emory University SOM faculty in 1998. He is currently Associate Professor of Neurology, and Vice-Chair for Education.

Dr. Khan is a hands-on teacher who for the past 18 years has supervised medical students, residents and other trainees during their rotations on the inpatient, consult, and outpatient services at Grady Memorial Hospital. He quickly established leadership roles in post-graduate medical education and ultimately became Director of the neurology residency and CNP fellowship training programs. Soon after, his role expanded to the Vice Chair of Neurologic Education in our Department of Neurology and since his appointment to this vital position Dr. Khan assumed responsibility for the direction of medical student education in the neurosciences.

Presently he is the Director of the Neurology Clinical Clerkship, Director of the M2 Neuroscience I Module, Co-Director of the M1 Neural Function Course, and the Co-Director of the M2 Neuroscience II Module. At the college level, he co-directs the Clinical Neurology Survey and the MD-SEE Courses for Emory’s undergraduates. In 2014, he had honor of directing a neuroscience course for Emory College’s Summer Abroad Program in Paris, France. His success as a clinician educator is exemplified by his receipt of, not one, but eleven institutional and national teaching awards for his efforts at the medical student and residency levels. Dr. Khan is an individual who has dedicated himself to neurology education and to contributing to the education of future generations of neurologists and other health professionals. As a education director he is an outstanding mentor, advocate, and teacher. His dedication, creativity, innovation and energy represent the epitome of excellence of medical education within Neurology.
