Neurology-Infectious Diseases Program:
About Our Service
The Neurology-Infectious Diseases Program is a unique subspecialty structured to diagnose, treat, and study the vast neurological complications of an array of infectious agents. Our section cares for patients suffering from conditions including:
Often these conditions are difficult to diagnose. When any of these are suspected, expert evaluation can help to confirm the proper diagnosis or to rule out diseases and point in other directions for diagnosis and management.
Research & Clinical Trials
We conduct ongoing research on neurologic complications of infectious diseases with the goal of improving care of patients with these conditions. We also participate in clinical trials, and other types of research. Please visit the Partners Clinical Trials website for more information about trials we are currently conducting.
Training & Education
As part of our mission to educate the next generation of neurologists, we train fellows from both the Division of Infectious Diseases, and the Department of Neurology. Read more about the Advanced General Neurology Fellowship at www.massgeneral.org/neurology/education/.
