    Susannah Cornes, MD is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology at UCSF. She received her Intensive BS in Psychobiology from Yale University with high honors and her MD from the University of California, San Francisco. She stayed at UCSF for her residency in Neurology, where she served as a chief resident in her final year. She completed a two-year fellowship in Epilepsy at UCSF and continued on as faculty in 2010. She also completed the Teaching Scholars Program in 2010, a faculty development fellowship for medical educators.

    Dr. Cornes divides her time between caring for adults with epilepsy, conducting clinical and educational research, and teaching trainees at a variety of levels. She is interested in the role of stress in seizures and epilepsy and serves as a principal investigator for the Stress Management Intervention for Living with Epilepsy (SMILE) trial, a large multicenter trial for adults with epilepsy. She is also a leader in medical education and the principal investigator for a study leading to the development of the “NeuroExam Tutor,” a mobile platform to teach neurologic examination skills. She is the recipient of teaching awards from the Department of Neurology and the Academy of Medical Educators and has published in a variety of areas related to epilepsy.
