Duke Neurology 2019

The last days of 2019 offer the opportunity to review some of the accomplishments and updates from the Duke Department of Neurology. In many ways 2019 was a year of continued growth and success. Duke Neurology and Neurosurgery rose in U.S. News and World Report's annual rankings for the third year in a row, from 46th in 2017 to 23rd in 2019.

We also treated more patients, expanded our residency and fellowship programs, and expanded our footprint in the Triangle. But our successes in 2019 go beyond just the numbers. Here are some highlights of the first half of 2019.
