Neurology is in the midst of a therapeutic revolution in which some of the most frightening diseases are at last becoming treatable through scientific and clinical advances. USF Neurology has entered the forefront of this exciting era by strategically aligning a wealth of resources in the basic and clinical neurosciences throughout the University, in partnership with the novel USF Neuroscience Collaborative. Our Centers of Excellence include:
- Alzheimer's Disease
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
- Ataxia / Cerebellar Disorders
- Headache and Pain Medicine
- Huntington's Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Neuromuscular Disease
- Parkinson's Disease
- Sleep Medicine
- Stroke and Vascular Neurology
USF Neurology also offers optimal training and education to our medical students, residents, fellows, practicing physicians and the community. Our residency program is large and robust, with excellent clinical training and patient resources across the full spectrum of Neurology, as well as a rich and detailed didactic curriculum over the three years of training, including a guaranteed first year of general internship for entering residents. We offer all of this in the beautiful urban center and coastal resort community of Tampa, Florida.
We look forward to a brighter future for our patients with your help as we work together to conquer, one by one, the most terrible of neurological diseases.
