Message from the chair

Welcome to the Department of Neurology at UMass Medical School, located in the heart of Central Massachusetts. We are committed to providing the highest quality care for patients with neurological disorders, while supporting families and improving quality of life. The holistic approach includes focusing on the entire aspect of well-being, which is often impacted by neurological disease. 

Medical students, residents and fellows benefit from significant education and mentorship by faculty. Our department is also deeply committed to diversity and inclusion so as to reflect the communities we serve and eliminate disparities in care.

We welcome you to explore this website and learn more about the clinical, research, and training programs at UMass Medical School, which reflect a broad range of areas of expertise and opportunity. Please reach out to us with any comments or questions.
