Dr. David Kaufman

 It is with great honor and enthusiasm that I announce my appointment as the Chair of Michigan State University's Department of Neurology and Ophthalmology. With over two decades of dedicated service to this esteemed department, I am humbled to lead our exceptional team into a new chapter of excellence and innovation.

Throughout my tenure, my unwavering passion for medical education and the well-being of our faculty has been the driving force behind our collective mission. Our commitment to providing an exceptional patient experience and delivering outstanding care remains at the forefront of our endeavors.

At Michigan State University, we take pride in enriching our faculty through active engagement with medical students, graduate students, residents, and fellows. Our AGGME accredited residency program boasts a cohort of 20 talented residents who exemplify the future of neurology and ophthalmology. 

I am excited to continue fostering a culture of academic excellence, compassion, and innovation within our department. Together, we will push the boundaries of knowledge, elevate patient care standards, and inspire the next generation of medical professionals.

I invite you to join us on this transformative journey as we strive for excellence in every aspect of our work. Your support and encouragement are invaluable as we embark on this exciting new chapter at Michigan State University.
