Letter from the Chair

Dear Fellowship Candidate

Welcome! It is a pleasure to provide information about various fellowship programs in the Department of Neurology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

Neurology at Jefferson has a long tradition of excellence in clinical training and care. Additionally, we are committed to providing an active and exciting research program, exemplified by the Farber Institute for the Neuroscience, established in the spring of 2002.

The faculty in the Department are engaged in cutting edge research and basic understanding of disease etiology and pathogenesis as well as translational research to apply the findings in the laboratory and to the bedside. Clinical trials of new treatments for neurological diseases are ongoing in all divisions of the Department. Consolidation and coordination of our Department and research base at the Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience has further strengthened our capacity for excellence in patient care, education, and research.

We provide clinical, research, or combined fellowships in many areas of neurology and neuroscience. The fellowship program can be tailored to the fellow's specific requirements.

The entire Neurology faculty joins me in expressing appreciation of your interest in our program. Feel free to contact us with any specific questions.
