Welcome to the Department of Neurology at SUNY Upstate Medical University. The department has a three-part mission - provide state of the art care, education and research.
First, we are dedicated to providing state of the art neurological care to the Upstate New York community. Second, we serve the educational needs of medical students, residents in neurology and other fields, fellows, and the general public. Finally, we are engaged in basic, clinical, and translational research in Neuroscience with the goals of furthering understanding of neurological diseases, and developing new treatments that will improve the lives of our patients.
Here you will find information on our inpatient services as well as our many outpatient specialty services and collaborative centers. Upstate Neurology provides tertiary care for a wide variety of neurological conditions, receiving referrals from throughout central New York, Pennsylvania, and Canada.
In addition we educate medical students, residents, fellows, and graduate students in all aspects of basic and clinical neuroscience. We perform cutting edge research both in basic science laboratories and the clinical research unit.
