Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry

Participants in this UCNS accredited fellowship will graduate from the program well prepared to direct the care of adults with degenerative cognitive disorders. Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health, established in 2009, is dedicated to improving the lives of people with neurodegenerative disorders, those at risk for such disorders, and their caregivers. The increasing prevalence of these disorders has created an urgent need for experts in the diagnosis and management of cognitive decline.

During their one or two years of training, fellows will be part of a multidisciplinary team in the Center for Brain Health. Through its state-of-the-art clinical, research, drug development, and educational programs, the Center is becoming a world leader in:

  • Prediction of cognitive impairment based on known and suspected risk factors
  • Delay and prevention of cognitive impairment
  • Recognition and diagnosis of dementia syndromes
  • Treatment of cognitive symptoms
  • Recognition and management of physical and behavioral complications
  • Caregiver education and reduction of caregiver stress
  • Leveraging community resources to benefit the cognitively impaired

Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry fellows will gain substantial expertise in all these areas, working with faculty in both Las Vegas and Cleveland. The fellowship’s faculty roster includes specialists in general and behavioral neurology, psychiatry, neuroradiology, geropsychiatry, movement disorders, social work, psychology, and neuro-ethics. Although dedicated to excellence in the clinic, our faculty members are all experienced researchers and educators.

Living in Las Vegas

Living in Las Vegas

While many Las Vegas newcomers are awed by the nightlife and world of entertainment options, they are even more delighted with the myriad of housing options available citywide. Whether you are looking for rural seclusion, a lush, private master-planned community or a high-rise living on the Las Vegas Strip, you will find the options endless.

Clark County contains Las Vegas, Henderson and North Las Vegas, which are the three biggest cities in Southern Nevada. Clark County's population based on the most recent U.S. Census figures indicates we have reached nearly two million residents.

Las Vegas is known as the entertainment capital of the world and over the last couple of decades has garnered accolades for its fast-growing population, entrepreneurial atmosphere, unlimited housing and vast employment options. Las Vegas continues to expand its non-gaming industry base and is becoming a notable education and research community.

Henderson has been consistently measured as one of the fastest-growing communities in the nation. Las Vegas' little sister, Henderson has a population of just over 250,000. Just south of Las Vegas, Henderson is a vibrant suburb. Created for Basic Magnesium, Inc. defense plants during World War II, Henderson continues to evolve with the addition of its own entertainment and recreation. Henderson's main attraction is Lake Mead, the world's largest man-made lake and home to Hoover Dam.

North Las Vegas is the third fastest-growing city in the nation with a population exceeding 200,000, and it is a vibrant and independent city. A proactive city government has led the way in creating a technology hub in the area. The city is home to the bulk of Southern Nevada's manufacturing facilities.

Located in the southeastern part of the valley, 25 miles from downtown Las Vegas and 10 miles outside of Henderson lies Boulder City, home of the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead National Recreation Area. This small community preserves the charm of small town U.S.A. and is just minutes from one of the most exciting cities in the world. Controlled growth and thoughtful planning make Boulder City an ideal choice for those seeking a hometown free from gaming.

You might choose the mountain communities located in west and southwest Las Vegas. Mountain's Edge, Summerlin and Centennial Hills are all planned neighborhood communities that offer amazing vistas and landscapes. Southern Highlands in southwest Las Vegas is one of the newest areas near the airport and the trendy "south" Strip. You might prefer more established communities in the heart of the city near the Strip and resort corridor in Paradise Valley. There are also beautiful communities in Henderson just south of Las Vegas featuring championship golf courses and country clubs such as Green Valley Ranch, MacDonald's Highlands and Seven Hills.
