Eric S. Rosenthal, MD, serves as Associate Director of the Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he directs the Neurocritical Care Fellowship Training Program and the MGH Critical Care Neuromonitoring Program.

Dr. Rosenthal devotes clinical time in the MGH Neurosciences ICU, on the MGH Acute Stroke Service, as part of the MGH Telestroke Service, and as part of the Epilepsy Service. His clinical interests include traumatic brain injury (TBI), subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), acute stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, and seizure disorders in critically ill patients, including status epilepticus.
