The Department of Neurology has a three part mission emphasizing education, clinical care, and research. The primary mission of the USU Department of Neurology is to educate, train, and prepare uniformed services health professionals to provide high quality care for patients with neurologic disorders and assist in the development of future military and public health services leaders. Neurology faculty at USU provide instruction to medical students across all 4 years of training, to residents in neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry and other graduate medical education programs, and to civilian and military students in the graduate schools at USU. Neurology education happens in large traditional classroom settings, small group seminar-style discussions, and in the clinical environment. We aim to be recognized as leaders in innovative education strategies by incorporating traditional bedside teaching methods with technological advances to produce knowledgeable and compassionate physician leaders.
Our faculty are active clinicians and neurologic sub-specialists providing exceptional care to patients at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, other institutions in the National Capital Region, and military treatment facilities across the United States. Our faculty are available to provide neurological consultation at all Department of Defense hospitals in the United States and throughout the world.
