Message from the Chair

jerry-wolinksyOur Mission

Central to the mission of the UTHealth Department of Neurology is to provide a comprehensive learning environment for students in the clinical neurosciences throughout their careers. We strive to provide this for medical students requiring a foundation in neurology for wherever their medical career paths may lead them, our residents in training committed to a future in clinical neurology, fellows seeking subspecialty expertise in a myriad of expanding subdisciplines of clinical neurology, investigators looking for a conducive environment to develop or apply groundbreaking research approaches in the explosive field of translational neurosciences, and for our faculty of clinician educators, clinician investigators and broader community of clinician scholars.

We see the ongoing emphasis and nurturing of our educational programs as critical to supporting our mandate to provide the very best care for Houstonians, Texans and those in need of evidence-based solutions to their needs for management of neurologic conditions.

As you survey our site, you will note that we have an outstanding faculty and an extensive and supportive staff. All are dedicated to provide excellent programs in the treatment of neurological disorders for those who cross through the thresholds of our facilities, affiliated hospitals and clinical sites.

We invite your comments and are pleased that you visited our site.
