Department of Neurology
The Department of Neurology at NYU Long Island School of Medicine is dedicated to offering outstanding medical education and conducting clinical research to further the personalized care of our patients.
Medical students who are interested in specializing in neurology benefit from interacting with faculty who are highly skilled at providing inpatient and outpatient clinical care for a variety of neurological conditions. These include Parkinson’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, spinal disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, peripheral nerve disorders, neuromuscular junction disorders, and muscle diseases. Medical students see first-hand how our neurologists collaborate with specialists in neurosurgery, neuroradiology, and rehabilitation to offer our patients comprehensive treatment plans.
Our department trains the next generation of leaders in neurology through a balance of teaching, clinical experiences, and ongoing clinical research activities.
Medical Student Education
To develop the clinical judgment necessary to treat neurology patients, students participate in the department’s core clerkship as part of phase two of the MD curriculum. The six-week clerkship rotations take place at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island and our clinical training site at NYU Langone Ambulatory Care East Meadow. We also organize and administer a six-week Body, Mind, and Behavior course for the first year of the medical school.
Continuing Medical Education
We offer continuing medical education (CME) opportunities to healthcare professionals who wish to further their education through weekly and monthly conferences at NYU Long Island School of Medicine. Our CME courses include Neurology Journal Club, Neurology Grand Rounds, Neurosurgery Grand Rounds, Stroke Radiology Conference, Spine Case Conference, Outpatient Spine Conference, Neuro-Muscular Group, Pediatric Neurosurgery Conference, Neuro-Oncology Tumor Board, and Neuromodulation Conference.
Healthcare professionals also have access to weekly CME courses at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, including Neurology Grand Rounds and Pediatric Neurology Grand Rounds.
Our neurologists develop clinically oriented ongoing research activities to improve the lives of people with neurological conditions. Learn more about research at NYU Long Island School of Medicine.
