About Michael Jaffee

My name is Michael Jaffee, MD, FAAN, FANA, and I am a board-certified neurologist, the director of the University of Florida Brain Injury, Rehabilitation and Neuroresilience Center, and chair of the UF Department of Neurology.

I served 21 years in the United States Air Force (USAF), retiring at the rank of colonel in 2013. My USAF career included wartime service as the chief of medical staff for the largest U.S. military hospital in Iraq and as the USAF surgeon general neurology consultant. I was also the Department of Defense liaison to two White House-appointed panels of the Defense Health Board and the national director of the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center.

I graduated from the University of Virginia School of Medicine in 1992 and completed a combined residency in neurology and psychiatry at the San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium in 1998. I went on to complete a sleep medicine fellowship there in 2011.

One of the first neurologists in the country to be certified in brain injury medicine, I see patients for a variety of neurological disorders, including traumatic brain injury, sports injuries, Alzheimer’s disease, dementias and sleep disorders.

Inspired by my father, an ENT physician who also trained in the Air Force and was dedicated to the public good, I became a neurologist with expertise in a broad range of neurological and psychological conditions so that I could help as many patients as possible.

Throughout my career, I have helped develop clinical practice guidelines and tools for the management of traumatic brain injury and have served as a consultant to the National Academy of Medicine, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the National Institutes of Health, and the National Football League.

My current research projects focus on better understanding risk factors and preclinical signs of dementia to include traumatic brain injuries and certain sleep disorders.
