About Us

Neurology is the branch of medical science concerned with diagnosis and management of disorders of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nervous system, and muscle.

Founded in 1919, the University of Iowa Department of Neurology was one of the first academic departments of neurology in the nation and the first to be established west of the Mississippi River.

The Department of Neurology’s hallmark is its history of carefully integrating patient care, scientific investigation, and the education of medical, postdoctoral, and graduate students.
