       Overview 
       Overview
      Vanja completed medical school, residency, and fellowship at UCSF. He joined the faculty in the Neurohospitalist Division of the Department of Neurology at UCSF in 2009. He spends most of his time attending on the general neurology inpatient ward or consult services. Vanja is actively involved in teaching medical students and residents, and has won several teaching awards including the Henry J. Kaiser Award for Excellence in Teaching. In 2011, Vanja was appointed Director of Undergraduate Education for the Department of Neurology; in this capacity he will oversee the neurology clinical clerkships within the department.

      Vanja's research interests are in how systems of care impact quality for neurology inpatients and in the prediction, prevention, and management of delirium. He also is involved in research regarding finding better ways to teach the neurological examination. He is editor in chief of The Neurohospitalist, a peer-reviewed journal focused on inpatient neurology.
