Here at Downstate we continue with our decades long mission of preparing excellent neurologists and endow them with the necessary tools to meet all future challenges. As the major academic center in Brooklyn we offer the highest quality neurology services to a very large and diverse population with many complex needs. We take pride in our strong commitment to the local community by providing compassionate care to every patient we serve. 

With close mentoring, outstanding education, and all necessary clinical resources our residents become experts in neurology and are ready to become leaders in any direction they choose. Furthermore we emphasize scholarly activity and support a variety of resident research endeavors.
