The Department of Neurology and Ophthalmology at MSU is unique because of its commitment to areas of study not typically found within traditional departments of neurology. This includes areas like neuro-intervention, neuro-otology, neuro-ophthalmology and neuro-epidemiology. As a rule such units and their faculty are usually located in radiology, ENT, ophthalmology and epidemiology. However, at MSU these core units have Neurology as their home. In addition, we also have the more traditional subspecialty disciplines within the department such as epilepsy, stroke, headache, Alzheimer's/memory disorders, M.S., EEG, EMG, etc.

Our vision for the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology at the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine is to be the leader in the clinical translation of cutting edge research to the patients and communities that we serve. We are focused on ensuring that our research is translated to the health care needs of women across their life spans and in diverse communities. Our faculty members have achieved national recognition for this research. Since 2009, our department has ranked in the top 23 of 135 departments of obstetrics and gynecology across the country in National Institutes of Health funding for research. We have recruited accomplished researchers in women’s health, including physicians, nurses, sociologists, clinical translational scientists and epidemiologists focused not only on the medical aspects, but on the social disparities that threaten women’s health.

The Department of Pediatrics and Human Development was established in 1968 with the formation of the College of Human Medicine at Michigan State University. Our department has sought to balance behavioral science, basic biological research, and clinical pediatrics. This orientation continues today through our comprehensive approach to the health and development of the child and the family.

Looking for something different? The Department of Psychiatry is the only academic psychiatry department in the nation that is part of two medical schools, DO and MD.
