The Department of Neurology is a strong, growing department and has a complement of 32 adult neurologists, who see over 1,200 in-patient and 20,000 outpatient cases each year. The basic science and clinical research programs are rapidly expanding, and include outstanding programs in epilepsy, stroke, ALS, and other neurological conditions. Additionally, the neurologists in this group supervise a class of 4 residents per year, as well as fellows in vascular neurology, clinical neurophysiology, and neuromuscular diseases. They are seeking general neurologists to join the faculty as the Access Clinic demand continues to grow. The Access Clinic is a collaborative team of neurologists and APPs, meant to shorten the wait time for patients' initial assessments of neurological concerns.
The healthcare system is also developing a close and collaborative relationship between the community and academic arms, to bring the very best in patient care to the greater communities in the region.
