Chief’s Message

Dr. Kalamangalam

Welcome to the Division of Epilepsy in the Department of Neurology! We are part of a thriving academic clinical department at the University of Florida College of Medicine that comprises over 45 neurologists involved in patient care, research and teaching. Our group of five full-time faculty members and two part-time members is supported by three full-time advanced practice registered nurses and a host of administrative, technical and research staff.

Our clinical mission is to provide exemplary and humane patient-centric care through professional excellence and superior logistics. Our larger vision is to lead the State of Florida in providing top-tier comprehensive epilepsy care backed by the best technology, offer a quality postgraduate medical education experience for residents and fellows, advance epilepsy-related research that pushes the boundaries of brain science, and contribute our citizenship to the wider epilepsy community. We are proud to belong to the #1 institution of higher learning in the State and privileged to practice at the #1 hospital in the State (US World and News Report, 2020-21).

We invite you to browse our pages and get to know us. This website is for patients, for physician colleagues, for prospective residents and fellows, or for anyone wanting more information on epilepsy and epilepsy services at UF Health. Portions of this website remain under construction; please email us at the address below for further or missing details, or with other general inquiries.
