    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Elan Guterman is a neurologist and clinical researcher dedicated to the care of patients with neurological disorders seen in the prehospital, emergency, and hospital setting. She obtained a bachelor’s degree from Dartmouth College, obtained a medical degree from Weill Cornell Medical College, and completed neurology residency and a neurohospitalist fellowship at UCSF. She became a faculty member of the UCSF Department of Neurology in 2018 and an affiliate faculty member of the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies in 2021. She also serves as Viewpoints Editor for JAMA Neurology.

    Following her clinical training, she obtained a master’s degree in clinical research through the UCSF Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics with the goal of using those skills to study and improve the delivery of emergency and inpatient neurologic care. Her career is focused on identifying gaps in the real-world care of common neurologic disorders such as epilepsy, stroke, and dementia and implementing solutions that improve access to high-quality care globally. She is enthusiastic about collaborating with other faculty and trainees who are similarly passionate about advancing health equity. In her global health work, she serves as an advisor to Partners In Health (PIH) and is currently collaborating with the PIH mental health team to develop the first neurology and psychiatry residency training program in Sierra Leone. This work parallels her clinical responsibilities at UCSF attending on the inpatient neurology consult and ward service where she is deeply committed to education and mentorship of medical student, resident, and fellowship trainees.
