About Dan Hoch, MD

I am a neurologist at the MGH and assistant professor at Harvard Medical School.

I received a BA from Whitman College, an MS in experimental psychology from Purdue University and a Ph.D. in neurobiology from the University of North Carolina. I then chose to attend medical school at UNC and completed a residency in neurology at UCLA.  My clinical interest is in the care of patients with epilepsy.
