Understanding and treating neurological disorders

Welcome to the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences at Stanford.

The Department has been a center of excellence for over four decades and includes over 130 faculty members with primary academic appointments in the department serving through the School of Medicine and four outstanding teaching hospitals and health care systems. These include Stanford Hospital and the adjacent Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, each of which is undergoing major expansion and transformation with the building of new adult and children’s hospitals. The Palo Alto VA is a top-tier modern, comprehensive veteran’s hospital which hosts many national academic clinical and research programs. Santa Clara Valley Medical Center is the second highest volume county hospital in California, serving a diverse spectrum of patients with a vast array of disorders. The ongoing population growth in Northern California and the Bay Area along with the technology and economic leadership of Silicon Valley continue to support the robust development of our four partnering health care systems and has made possible the Department’s status as a high-volume clinical program supporting excellence in clinical care, education and research.
