Stanford Neurohospitalist Program

Overview

  • Neurological disorders in hospitalized patients are often challenging to diagnose, and optimal treatment of their disease requires an increasingly specialized skill set. The Stanford Neurohospitalist Program is one of only a few academic programs nationwide and one of only three with a dedicated fellowship program for advanced clinical training in acute care neurology. Our faculty lead both primary and consultative services at Stanford Hospital and specialize in the care of acutely ill, clinically complex patients with multisystem disease. In addition to our clinical practice, each of our faculty maintain an active research focus with publications on educational innovation, clinical pathways and quality and value in healthcare.

What We Do

We care for patients with a wide variety of illnesses ranging from autoimmune encephalitis to acute myasthenia gravis exacerbation, Guillain-Barre syndrome, refractory epilepsy, meningitis, headache, primary and secondary brain cancers, and delirium. We collaborate with our outpatient neurology colleagues to ensure highly integrated and seamless care at every transition. Our diagnostic expertise in evaluating patients with multisystem disease and experience in treating both acute primary neurologic disease as well as neurologic complications of systemic disease is sought out by teams from all disciplines in the hospital and neurologists across the region.

Who We Are

Our inpatient multidisciplinary neurohospitalist team is committed to providing comprehensive, patient-centered care. Our fellowship-trained neurohospitalist faculty work closely with our bedside nurses, nursing leadership, case manager, social worker, and inpatient rehabilitation team both in direct patient care and in quality improvement projects to improve how we care for patients.

Hospital Transfers
