Advancing neurological health in Indiana and beyond through innovation and excellence in education, research and patient care

The Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Neurology, under the leadership of Chair Laurie Gutmann, MD, has a rich tradition in academic neurology with a national reputation in neurological education and neuroscience research. The department is located in the Indiana University Health Neuroscience Center, a state-of-the-art outpatient center that unites all the specialties that involve nervous system disorders—Neurology, Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Neuropsychology and Neuroradiology. It is also home to the main outpatient Neurophysiology laboratory at IU Health. The adjoining IU School of Medicine Neurosciences Research Building and Stark Neurosciences Research Institute enables clinicians, basic scientists and clinician-scientists to collaborate in an environment that is rarely achieved in academic medicine.


Accomplished physician faculty in the Department of Neurology are deeply committed to training medical students, residents and fellows in this complex field of medicine. The residency and fellowship programs provide exceptional training for the nation's future neurologists.
