Patient populations in the military have specific needs that are often unmet by civilian medicine. The USU Department of Neurology ensures graduates are prepared for anything from standard neurological injuries to diagnosing and monitoring therapeutic responses for mild traumatic brain injury. The Department of Neurology has a three part mission emphasizing education, research and clinical care. Faculty at USU provide instruction to medical students across all 4 years of school, to residents in neurology and psychiatry, and to neuroscience PhD candidates. Neurology education happens in large traditional classroom settings, small group seminar-style discussions, and in the clinical environment. Our faculty are active clinicians providing exceptional neurologic care to patients in the National Capital Region and also provide neurological consultation to physicians at all Department of Defense hospitals throughout the United States and all over the world. In addition to clinician-researchers, the Department of Neurology is also home to several basic science researchers who focus on bench-to-bedside solutions in many military relevant areas such as traumatic brain injury. Our department is committed to providing the best neurological care and education that meets specific needs of our service members and veterans with an emphasis on return to duty and enhanced quality of life.
