Department of Neurology


Welcome to the Academic Home Page for the Department of Neurology. Information for patients and the public can be found on our clinical home page.

Our department’s neurologists have been recognized nationally and internationally for clinical and research expertise and innovations. The department's overarching goal is to provide patients compassionate care while working to develop new treatments that will lessen the toll of neurological disorders.


As part of the Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience, the region's only dedicated hospital for neuroscience, our neurologists participate in leading-edge, multidisciplinary care. The department sponsors a fully accredited residency training program, fellowship programs, as well as educational programs for medical students.

Neuroscience research is a focus at Jefferson as exemplified by the Vickie and Jack Farber Institute for Neuroscience, established in the spring of 2002. All Neurologic Specialty Centers are involved in research endeavors as well. See our Research section for more information.
