The Department of Neurology at NYU Langone welcomes your interest in our clinical, education, and research programs. NYU Langone has a rich history in the development of Neurology as a specialty and that tradition of moving the field forward exists today. To enhance our clinical, teaching, and research missions, we have formed close relationships with our colleagues in Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, and Neuroscience. We are organized into divisions to emphasize our strengths in sub-specialty Neurology.
