Epilepsy Center faculty include Dennis Spencer and Lawrence Hirsch (Co-directors of the center), Richard Mattson, Hal Blumenfeld, and Jullie Pan. The adult and pediatric neurology departments are in the midst of a major expansion of programs, including epilepsy. Opportunities available at any level of experience.
