Message from the Chair

Dr. Brooks-Kayal portraitAmy Brooks-Kayal, M.D.
Department Chair

The 21st century is a remarkable time to be training in the field of Neurology. Thanks to unprecedented advances in neuroscience and bioengineering research– leading to life-saving treatments for previously incurable illness – we’re experiencing a dynamic transformation. Today, we know more about the nervous system and have more effective treatments for neurological diseases than ever before. To deliver these new therapies to the many patients who need them, we will require a large, diverse, and well-trained Neurology workforce. 

At UC Davis Health, we offer fellowship programs in a variety of specialty areas: clinical neurophysiology, epilepsy, movement disorders, neurobehavior and vascular.  All our fellowship programs are committed to training neurologists who will be prepared to meet these challenges. Our fellows benefit from all the resources of UC Davis Health and the Department of Neurology, gaining opportunities to learn from an experienced, dedicated, and innovative faculty in an inclusive and welcoming environment. Our team brings together academic neurologists, neuropsychologists, and basic and clinical research scientists to pursue a three-fold mission of world-class patient care, groundbreaking research, and innovative education.

We look forward to having you learn more about UC Davis Health and the Department of Neurology and our shared mission of improving lives and transforming health care by providing outstanding patient care, conducting groundbreaking research, fostering innovative education, and creating dynamic, productive partnerships with the community.
