Department of Neurology

The Estelle and Daniel Maggin Department of Neurology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is equally robust in patient care, education, and research. We strive to improve outcomes in the treatment of Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, epilepsy, headache, neuropathies, brain and spinal cord tumors, and other neurological disorders in children and adults. We have six centers, four programs, and one division, all dedicated to this mission.

We also offer a variety of educational programs to impart a broad base of knowledge in neuroscience and the clinical ability to recognize and treat the full spectrum of neurologic diseases. Our fellowship opportunities enable you to specialize within your ideal clinical or research focus, with investigative opportunities funded by the National Institutes of Health.

Our Neurology Department is the oldest in the nation. We opened our inpatient neurology service in 1900 under the direction of Bernard Sachs, MD, who was the first to describe Tay-Sachs disease. Over the past 100-plus years, we have continued to grow and contribute to research and patient care. 

We have a wide range of centers and programs geared to education, research, and patient care. Blending these functions is instrumental to improving outcomes in the treatment of Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, epilepsy, headache, neuropathies, brain and spinal cord tumors, and other neurological disorders in children and adults.
