Department of Neurology

The Department of Neurology at Saint Louis University School of Medicine is a leader in medical education and research, training highly skilled neurologists to serve the Midwest and the rest of the nation.

We offer diverse patient care and teaching experiences for our students and residents. Our primary inpatient service site is at SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital where we offer active stroke, neurological intensive care, neurointerventional and general neurology services.

We also have outpatient general neurology and subspecialty clinics (e.g., neuromuscular, concussion). We have an active presence at the VA Saint Louis Health Care System - John Cochran Division, which has faculty with primary appointments within our department. Our child neurology faculty and residents provide service to SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital and Medical Center.
