Department of NeurologyMission Statement

The mission of the Department of Neurology at the University of Toledo Health Sciences Campus is three-fold: 1) to provide excellent education to our students, residents, fellows, and the wider community of medical professionals, 2) To improve the lives of persons with neurological disorders through compassionate, state-of-the-art medical care and education, and 3) To advance the state of knowledge of neurological disease, and develop new treatments through basic and clinical research.

Welcome from the Chair

Dr. Gretchen TietjenWelcome to the Department of Neurology! The Department has a dedicated team of academic neurologists committed to our education, patient care and research missions.

We have achieved a national reputation and garnered numerous awards for our excellent and innovative teaching, particularly as it pertains to our medical student clerkship and neurology residency programs. Many of our faculty are invited Professors at educational forum throughout the country and serve at faculty and directors of courses at national meetings.  And with leadership positions on state and national professional boards and committees, our faculty are working to shape the future of neurological education.  

As the only academic tertiary care center within Northwest Ohio, we provide a high level of expertise for a variety of conditions within the University of Toledo Center for Neurological Health. Our faculty are fellowship trained to provide outstanding care for persons with stroke, epilepsy, neuromuscular disease, headache, multiple sclerosis, movement disorders, and dizziness. Many of our programs, including those in Multiple Sclerosis, Headache Medicine, Vestibular Disorders, and Parkinson’s Disease have multi-disciplinary clinics, which regularly bring together experts from Neurology,  Psychology and Neuropsychology, Physical Therapy, and Pharmacy in one location. Our EEG laboratory and Epilepsy Monitoring Unit is the largest and most advanced in the region. The UTMC Stroke Center, established in 1995 and certified by The Joint Commission since 2005 has garnered national recognition and multiple awards for providing excellent clinical care.

The Department of Neurology has the most active clinical research program in the institution, with secondary prevention or treatment trials in Parkinson’s Disease, Stroke, Migraine, Epilepsy, and Multiple Sclerosis. Two of our programs in basic science and translational research have received national funding, recognition and awards.

Welcome to our website and we hope to share our excitement with you!
