Our neurologists draw on research and experience to treat neurological conditions, from the most common to the complex. So whether you have a headache or a life-threatening stroke, you get the latest diagnostic and treatment options. For example, the department includes a large group of internationally renowned faculty specializing in Parkinson's, other movement disorders, stroke, sleep, epilepsy, dizzy and balance problems, nerve and muscle diseases, Alzheimer's disease, and more.

The Department of Neurology was established in 1958 and continued to expand formal neurological training opportunities for providing neurologic care. As neurology's importance and influence increased within the medical field, its status was elevated from a division within the Department of Medicine to an independent department in 1976.

Translating Science into Treatment
