Welcome to the Department of Clinical Neurosciences

Since 1981 we have grown rapidly to become a national leader in research, medical education and patient care in the neurosciences. From the world's most sophisticated intra-operative imaging technologies to the first robot for micro-neurosurgical application, we continue to explore the boundaries of the clinical neurosciences. Recruited from around the world, our expert and research-intensive team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, physiatrists and researchers provide exemplary care to residents of southern Alberta and beyond.

DCNS annual report highlights "Innovation Through Collaboration"


The Department of Clinical Neurosciences is pleased to release its annual report, which includes stories about our research, our clinical work, and the partnerships that allow us to succeed.

It is available in PDF form by clicking here.

The report summarizes the work of our four divisions over the past year: Neurology; Neurosurgery; Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation; and Translational Neuroscience.

It contains a summary of all our programs and clinics, lists our grant and publication successes, and tells the story of some of our patients — individuals who inspire us daily.
