The efforts and expertise of this multidisciplinary group of physicians and scientists have produced significant contributions to our understanding of neurological disease mechanisms and to the development of today’s most effective treatments for brain disorders.
All of the Department of Neurology’s physicians are also faculty members at Harvard Medical School, where they have taught and trained many of the nation’s leading neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists, psychiatrists and other specialists. The department organizes a 45-resident Harvard Neurology training program and offers a variety of sub-specialty fellowship training programs in specialties such as Stroke & Critical Care, Movement Disorder, Cancer Neurology, Multiple Sclerosis, Neurophysiology and Neuro-Ophthalmology.
