About Joshua Wong

Dr. Wong is an assistant professor at the Norman Fixel Institute for Neurological Diseases at UF Health. He treats patients with movement disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, dystonia and others. He also has a clinical focus in deep brain stimulation, or DBS, and artificial intelligence. He received his bachelor’s degree in bioengineering from UC San Diego and medical degree at New York Medical College. He also completed his residency in neurology and fellowship in movement disorders at the University of Florida.

Dr. Wong’s laboratory is a part of the University of Florida Artificial Intelligence (AI) Initiative, where he focuses on utilizing AI to improve and transform clinical care and medical education for those with DBS for movement disorders. His lab focuses on applying cutting edge machine learning techniques to neuroimaging, connectomics and electrophysiology.
