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).
