The Department of Neurology at Michigan Medicine aims to provide outstanding care for patients with disease affecting the nervous system, advance understanding and treatment of these conditions through research and other scholarly work, and educate the next generation of physicians and scientists in the field.
Our Mission Statement
Our Clinical Programs
Patient care through the Department of Neurology at the University of Michigan provides quality care for the treatment of Parkinson's disease, seizures, dizziness, multiple sclerosis, stroke, headaches, sleep disorders and epilepsy among many other disorders of the nervous system.
Our Educational Programs
The Neurology Department provides education across the spectrum of learners. We have shadowing opportunities in outpatient clinics for interested University of Michigan undergraduates. The neuroscience sequence in the Scientific Trunk covers normal anatomy and physiology of the nervous system, as well as common neurologic disorders. Clinical Trunk students complete a four-week required neurology clerkship. Electives on the inpatient neurology consultation service and in outpatient subspecialty clinics are available for Branch students. We have an ACGME-accredited neurology residency program with six residents in each year, offer a broad range of post-residency fellowship programs in all the major clinical subspecialties, and provide post-residency research training opportunities under the auspices of two NIH-funded T32 training grants.
Department of Neurology research programs include basic studies in the pathogenesis of disease, the identification of conditions, patient-oriented studies of disease phenotype and the response to novel treatments, as well as epidemiology and health services research related to neurologic disease.
