Jerome H. Chin, MD, MPH, PhD

Adjunct Professor, Department of Neurology

hypertension, stroke, global health, HIV, tuberculosis

I joined the Department of Neurology as an adjunct professor in August 2015. Since 2010 I have been extensively involved in global health and international neurology. My research interests include the determinants and prevention of stroke in developing countries, the neurology of HIV/AIDS, and central nervous system tuberculosis.

I am a visiting faculty member at Mulago National Referral Hospital in Kampala, Uganda and Muhumbili University of Health and Allied Sciences in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania where I teach neurology to medical students, interns, and residents for two months every year. Senior NYU neurology residents have the opportunity to join me and Dr. Jaydeep Bhatt during these teaching visits.

In 2012 I founded the Alliance for Stroke Awareness and Prevention Project, a student-led, volunteer initiative providing free, community-based screening and counseling for high blood pressure and diabetes in Uganda, Tanzania, India, and Nepal.

I am a fellow of the American Academy of Neurology, as well as chair of the academy’s International Subcommittee, a member of the Sections Subcommittee, and past and founding chair of its Global Health Section.

I graduated from the MD–PhD program at Yale School of Medicine, and I earned my MPH at the University of California, Berkeley. I completed my medical internship and neurology residency at the University of California, San Francisco.
