The Department of Neurology has four clinical divisions:

Adult Neurology

The Adult Section of Neurology is the largest among the three Sections in the Department of Neurology. We currently have 32 adult neurologists who provide inpatient and outpatient care in all subspecialties of our field, including Neurointensive and Neurointerventional Care, Multiple Sclerosis, Neuromuscular diseases, Epilepsy, and General Neurology. In addition to our clinical faculty, we have 6 full-time research faculty who conduct basic and applied research.

Pediatric Neurology

The MCW Pediatric Neurology Division consists of a dedicated team of physicians and allied health professionals, who provide consultative care to children with a wide variety of neurological disorders in a tertiary care setting. We exist as an academic Pediatric Neurology Division to excel in research, teaching, and patient care. It is our mission to set and maintain high standards worthy of emulation by others in all three of these areas.


The Neuropsychology clinic was established in 1979 by the Department of Neurology of the Medical College Wisconsin and its affiliated hospitals. It is currently located at the MCW Clinic at Froedtert West. Consultations are also made to other hospitals, attorneys and school systems. The purpose of the clinic is threefold: (1) Clinical Services, (2) Teaching, (3) Research.

Stroke, Neurointervention and Critical Care

Neurointerventional is a subspecialty field of medicine that combines highly specialized skills from the disciplines of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Neuroradiology to offer minimally invasive therapies for disorders of the brain and spine.

In addition to these divisions, we have several PhD researchers who, in conjunction with our clinical faculty, support our departmental mission of furthering both clinical and basic research.
