About UIHC - Department of Neurology

Neurology is the branch of medical science concerned with diagnosis and management of disorders of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nervous system, and muscle. We invite you to apply to become a member and colleague in this outstanding department.

Founded in 1919, the University of Iowa Department of Neurology was one of the first academic departments of neurology in the nation and the first to be established west of the Mississippi River.

The Department of Neurology’s hallmark is its history of carefully integrating patient care, scientific investigation, and the education of medical, postdoctoral, and graduate students. Iowa Neurology has a proud tradition of state-of-the-art and high quality clinical care, of leading edge research, and of training the next generation of skilled academic leaders and impeccably trained clinical practitioners.

The skills that have been the most influential were learning different neuropsychological tests, acquiring additional statistics knowledge, and learning the basics of coding in R. ”
