The Department of Neurology is organized to provide medical education opportunities in clinical neurology at undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate levels of training. The clinical facilities of Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, Lyndon B. Johnson General Hospital, and M. D. Anderson Cancer Center are available for the care and study of a variety of acute and chronic neurological disorders.
A four-week clerkship is required in the third year for medical students. Clinical experience is directed toward history-taking, physical and laboratory examinations in neurological disorders, and the management of neurological disorders such as stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, coma, muscle/nerve disorders, Parkinsonism, and dementia.
The purpose of the Department of Neurology Residency Training Program is to prepare the clinician for the independent practice of neurology. It is defined as a clinical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of disease that affect the nervous system including the central (brain and spinal cord), peripheral (nerves and roots), and autonomic nervous systems, their coverings, blood supply, and effectors (muscles). For these nervous system diseases, the neurologist is the principle care physician and may render all levels of care commensurate with his or her training.
Fellowships are available in electrodiagnostics (EEG, EEG/video monitoring, EMG, and evoked potentials), stroke, epilepsy, movement disorders, and multiple sclerosis/neurovirology neuroimmunology.
