    CLINICAL INTERESTS: After completing residency and fellowship training at UCSF, Dr. Nicole Rosendale joined the faculty in the Neurohospitalist Division of the Department of Neurology at UCSF in 2017. She primarily attends on the teaching service at San Francisco General Hospital, the city's safety-net hospital and only Level 1 trauma center. Her clinical expertise encompasses the acute manifestations of neurologic disease, including cerebrovascular disease, neuroinfectious disease, and the neurologic manifestations of systemic illness.

    RESEARCH INTERESTS: In addition to her clinical duties, Dr. Rosendale is dedicated to advancing neurological health equity through research and education, particularly in regard to LGBTQ+ health. Her work has defined the current state of scientific literature in neurological LGBTQ+ health, educated around caring for transgender individuals in the acute care setting, and exposed discrepancies between self-reported competence in caring for LGBTQ+ individuals and LGBTQ+ health knowledge in U.S. neurologists. Dr. Rosendale's current research focuses on improving brain health in LGBTQ+ people through investigation of stroke and stroke risk factors.

    SERVICE: Dr. Rosendale is Co-Director of UCSF BALANCE (, a program dedicated to advancing neurological health equity locally, nationally, and globally through education, clinical care, research, and community engagement. Dr. Rosendale serves as a member of the American Academy of Neurology Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee and a member of the American Heart Association Bay Area Board of Directors.
