The Department of Neurology provides opportunities for the student to acquire basic clinical skill in the analysis and management of neurologic problems and to become familiar with common diseases of the nervous and muscular systems.

The work represents an extension into the clinical area of the principles learned in other scientific disciplines during the first and second year.

Fourth-year courses provide the opportunities for repeated practical experience in neurologic problem solving and are available by working with patients on the wards and in the outpatient department under the supervision of experienced neurologists, and by attending conferences dealing with current neurologic problems. Instruction is given at Oishei Children’s Hospital, Buffalo General Medical Center, Erie County Medical Center, Veterans Administration Medical Center, and Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital.

Department Coordinator: Tom Bellanca
