The Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Neurology provides comprehensive consultative services, diagnostic testing and treatment for a broad spectrum of neurological conditions, including diseases of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles.
Our department consists of more than 230 physicians and scientists, many of whom have gained national and international recognition for their clinical and/or research efforts. We are united by a common purpose: finding new treatments and cures that will reduce and ultimately eliminate the devastating impact of neurological disorders.
Guided by the needs of our patients, our mission is to be the preeminent academic neurology department in the US by: providing outstanding clinical care while rapidly discovering new treatments to reduce and eliminate the devastating impact of neurological disorders; training the very best neurologists and scientists of the future, and improving the health and well-being of the diverse communities we serve.
Our core values are excellence in service, innovation, education, and neuroscience research in the field of neurology. We value:
