The goal of the Department of Neurology is to deliver the highest quality of neurological care to patients by integrating academic medicine with whole-person care, research, and education. With the rapid development of technology, it is essential that medical students learn to recognize and treat a variety of neurological disorders. The objective of the department's four-week rotation is to further God's work of restoring wholeness to people by teaching the essentials of clinical neurology through compassionate patient care, bedside teaching, and a focused didactic curriculum.
