Welcome to Michigan State University's Department of Neurology and Ophthalmology Web Page! We are delighted to share what our Department has to offer.
The Department of Neurology and Ophthalmology at MSU is unique because of its commitment to areas of study not typically found within traditional departments of neurology. This includes areas such as neuro-intervention, neuro-otology, neuro-ophthalmology and neuro-epidemiology. As a rule, such units and their faculty are usually located in radiology, ENT, ophthalmology and epidemiology. However, at MSU, these core units have Neurology as their home. In addition, we also have the more traditional subspecialty disciplines within the department such as epilepsy, stroke, headache, Alzheimer's/memory disorders, M.S., EEG, EMG, etc.
As a unit, our faculty are involved in creating an environment at Michigan State University that allows for robust clinical and basic neuroscience research opportunity, vibrant educational programs in both Neurology and Ophthalmology, outstanding clinical services in all the major disciplines of Neurology and outreach throughout Michigan and beyond.
