Major Goals and Plans

The Division is in the process of recruiting an additional faculty member in clinical neurophysiology and expanding the epilepsy surgery program. We have also established a pediatric neurophysiology fellowship and accepted our first trainee. We plan to recruit at least one additional faculty member within the next year. Particular emphasis on recruitment of physician scientists and clinician-teachers specializing in neurodevelopmental disorders is planned.

Outpatient

We continue to grow our outpatient clinics and have expanded the specialty clinics to include neonatal neurology follow-up clinic and neurocutaneous disorders clinic. We plan to provide specific clinics for intractable epilepsy, vagus nerve stimulator and ketogenic diet consultations. We hope to move to new space within the next year that will allow us to expand our services and see more patients.

Inpatient

Dedicated neonatal neurology and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit coverage and enhanced teaching in those areas is being implemented. Our epilepsy monitoring unit is being expanded and the epilepsy surgery program will also grow.
