Thank you for your interest in the Department of Neurology at the Medical College
of Georgia at Augusta University.
Our department aims for the highest quality of clinical care, the best training experience
for our medical students, residents, and fellows, and the performance of cutting-edge
research. We have a strong foundation in general neurology and neurological subspecialties
including stroke/telestroke, general neurology/headache, movement disorders, neurocognitive
disorders, epilepsy, neuromuscular disorders, multiple sclerosis, clinical neurophysiology,
neuropsychology, neuro-critical care, interventional neurology and pediatric neurology.
We are the hub for a pioneering 29 spoke telestroke network and a JC certified Comprehensive
Stroke Center (first in Georgia), a National Parkinson’s Foundation Center of Excellence,
a NAEC Level 4 Epilepsy Center, and the only ALS Association Certified Center in Georgia.
The department’s teaching mission includes medical students, residents, and fellows
undergoing advanced training. Research activities in the department include both basic
science and clinical and translational investigations. Additionally, our multidisciplinary
Neuroscience Center of Excellence facilitates active collaborations with subspecialists
from other departments including general neurosurgery, neuroradiology, neuro-otology,
neuro-ophthalmology, functional neurosurgery (deep brain stimulation and epilepsy
surgery), neuro-gastroenterology and basic scientists. Our facility houses a wide
variety of other specialties including a level I trauma center, and seven ICUs (neurology,
shock trauma, surgery, pediatric, neonatal, cardiology, and medical).
Highest quality of clinical care, best training experience and cutting-edge research.
