About Stephan Eisenschenk

Stephan Eisenschenk MD is an Associate Professor of Neurology for the University of Florida’s Department of Neurology. He attended the University of Florida as an undergraduate in the Medical Honors Program and graduated from the University of Florida College of Medicine in 1993. He then completed his Residency, Fellowship, in Clinical Neurophysiology in Epilepsy and Sleep Medicine at the University of Florida and has been on faculty at UF Health since 1998. He is one of only a few physicians nationally board-certified in Clinical Neurophysiology and Sleep Medicine providing complete assessment of both his patients and the neurodiagnostic studies he interprets with over 20 years of clinical and research experience. In 2016, Dr. Eisenschenk was appointed Director of the North Florida/South Georgia VAMC Epilepsy Center of Excellence for the evaluation of our veterans with epilepsy and the possible relationship with traumatic brain injury. His clinical interests are epilepsy and sleep disorders focusing on improvement of cognitive and physical performance.  His research utilizes neurophysiology and neuroimaging modalities to assess cognitive and physical dysfunction to determine the effects of neurological disorders on driving performance.
