Dr. George Ojemann is Professor emeritus in the Department of Neurological Surgery at UW School of Medicine. He is an attending neurosurgeon of the UW Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center, and Children’s Hospital and Regional Medical Center of Seattle and a consultant to the Veteran’s Administration Hospital.

For nearly forty years, Dr. Ojemann’s clinical interests focused on the surgical therapy of medically refractory epilepsy and brain tumors in functionally important cortical areas. He was a pioneer using the technique of cortical mapping to avoid post-operative language deficits in epilepsy surgery. His research focuses on the neurobiology of human cognition, particularly cortical organization for language and memory, investigated in the context of awake neurosurgery under local anesthesia.

He obtained both his undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Iowa. Dr. Ojemann then completed his neurosurgical training at King County Hospital (now Harborview Medical Center in Seattle) and the University of Washington, followed by further specialty training in surgical neurology at the National Institutes of Health. He returned to Seattle in 1966, and has been affiliated with the neurosurgical faculty since that time.

Dr. Ojemann served as director of the Regional Epilepsy Center at Harborview from 1986-1996. In addition to being listed in Who’s Who in America and Best Doctors in America, he is on editorial boards of several scholarly journals in the field of neurosurgery and neurology, is a well-known speaker internationally, and a recipient of many awards for his contributions to the field of epilepsy.


Presentation Topics

Lectures will cover cutting edge innovations in: 

Intended Audience
Neurology Day 2019 seeks to fulfill the educational needs of healthcare professionals who manage patients with neurologic diseases and disorders. The activity is designed for neurologists, nurse practitioners, and physicians assistants. Other medical disciplines are also welcome to attend.

Course Description
The Neurology Day course will address identified clinical challenges in a wide array of areas to include  stroke, neuromuscular, sleep medicine, multiple sclerosis, neuro-oncology,pediatric headache, movement disorders, and epilepsy. Through cutting-edge content delivered by expert faculty, practitioners will review the latest advances and best practices in the rapidly evolving field of neuroscience. Emphasis will be placed on information required to evaluate novel screening, diagnostic strategies and available therapeutic options to arrive at the most effective approach for treatment and/or referral of patients. Lectures with question and answer sessions, and panel discussions will afford learners the opportunity to examine practice dilemmas, discuss available evidence and apply effective case management.

Activity Objectives

Upon completion of this activity attendees should:

  • Acquire an enhanced and updated knowledge of various topics and practices in clinical neurology as provided by subspecialty experts.
  • This updated knowledge will help providers properly diagnose, treat and improve the care of their patients with neurological diseases.
  • Discuss current clinical and research advances in the neurosciences

Continuing Medical Education Credits
The University of Washington School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The University of Washington School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
