University of Chicago

Sections and Programs

The clinical faculty is simultaneously engaged in teaching medical students, residents and fellows as well as conducting cutting-edge translational and clinical research. The close integration with the basic sciences creates a bench-to-bedside culture that values swift application of discovery to patient benefit.

We offer a full spectrum of medical, surgical, pharmacological and support therapies to diagnose, treat and relieve neurological problems. These range from prescription medicines — including experimental drugs — to biofeedback and physical therapy. We also provide genetic testing to identify and better understand brain malformations and diseases and neuropsychological evaluations to test cognitive and behavioral functions.
