Welcome to the Department of Neurology

Krishnankutty Sathian, MD, PhDAs one of the premier academic departments of neurology in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the only one in central Pennsylvania, Penn State Health is known for its world-class patient care, education and research. 

The department is in an exciting phase of growth as clinical services expand to meet the needs of our patients, the residency program increases in size, and we enhance research activity and collaborations. We provide state-of-the-art care for patients across a wide range of neurologic disorders and are actively engaged in clinical research while collaborating with basic scientists at the Hershey and University Park campuses. 

Our outstanding team of academic neurologists educate medical students at various stages of their undergraduate medical studies and train graduate students, postdoctoral research fellows and clinical fellows – all with the goal of developing the next generation of leaders in the field of neurology.

We are also proud of our outreach activities to neurologists and non-neurology health care providers, as well as the community at large. Highlights include our new tele-ALS clinics that allow patients suffering from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis to receive care without having to leave their homes and our active support of the Pennsylvania Keystone Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society through fundraising walks and community lectures.

Thank you for your interest in our department, and please contact us if you require further information.
