Welcome to the Department Website!

Welcome to the George Washington University Department of Neurology. The Department serves to fulfill the tripartite mission of all academic departments contributing to patient care, education, and discovery that leads to new therapeutics. We partner with colleagues throughout George Washington University, George Washington University Hospital, the Children's National Health System, and the National Institutes of Health. Patients benefit from state of the art care utilizing all current medical technologies. A core of dedicated faculty provide outstanding educational program for residents and medical students based on a rich patient population from the Washington, D.C. community. Research is active in areas of dementia, cerebrovascular disease, multiple sclerosis, and myasthenia gravis. With my taking on the chairmanship on September 1, 2011, the Department begins a period of major expansion with a goal of becoming the regional leader in the provision of neurological care.
