Department of Neurology

The Estelle and Daniel Maggin Department of Neurology at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is built around the nation’s oldest Neurology Department with more than 100 years of history. Our neurology residency program is designed to provide residents with a broad base of knowledge in neuroscience, and the clinical abilities to recognize and treat the full spectrum of neurologic diseases. Our fellowship and internship opportunities give students the chance to specialize and find their ideal clinical, or research focus, with NIH funded research opportunities and excellent physician-instructor support.

  • The Mount Sinai Hospital ranks 15th in the nation for Neurology in the 2014-2015 “Best Hospitals” issue of U.S. News and World Report
  • Our researchers receive more than $30 million annually in NIH research grants
