Neurology Resources for Professionals
At the Division of Neurology at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), we’ll work with you and your patients to give you the information and support needed to provide optimal care.
Our team is a world leader in treating pediatric neurologic disorders. With more than 27,000 outpatient visits each year, the number of patients and range of neurologic conditions we see every day gives us experience that is unmatched in the region.
Our team members are actively involved in research projects and clinical trials focused on a wide variety of neurologic injuries and neurodevelopmental problems. We are committed to working with you and your patients to improve treatment options and outcomes for children affected by neurological disorders.
Refer a patient
Referring a patient outside your care is an act of trust. You must be confident the team you refer to has the knowledge, training and experience to make a significant difference in the outcome for your patient.
Outpatient appointments can be scheduled months in advance with all Neurology providers at all locations where Neurology services are offered.
If your patient needs to be seen urgently, referring physicians may use the Expedited Appointment Request form.
Education and training programs
There are several professional training and medical education opportunities related to the Division of Neurology at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, including several fellowships and a pediatric child neurology residency program.
Remote EEG monitoring program
The Epilepsy Program at CHOP has an experienced team of EEG technologists and electroencephalographers who are skilled in continuous-electroencephalography (CEEG), the gold standard of seizure detection, diagnosis and treatment. Our team provides a remote CEEG monitoring service for neonatal intensive care units that do not have local CEEG services.
Our program offers real-time, remote CEEG monitoring and interpretation by our experienced EEG technologists and electroencephalographers. This allows neonates to remain hospitalized in centers that can meet their overall medical needs and alleviates the safety risks associated with transferring critically ill neonates between hospitals for the sole purpose of performing CEEG.
