Thomas Kelly MD, Interim Chair

Dr. Kelly is a respected member of the Department of Neurology, an outstanding clinician and teacher; someone who is familiar with both the opportunities and challenges that we face at The University of Chicago.  Dr. Kelly serves as the Associate Chair of Clinical Operations in the Department of Neurology, Assistant Director of the Neurology Residency Training Program and Medical Director of the Outpatient Neurology Clinic.  He has been selected by the Neurology residents as Teacher or co-Teacher-of-the-Year on four separate occasions.  Dr. Kelly is very committed to working with the neurology faculty, with the Dean’s office and with hospital leadership to ensure that the Department maintains positive momentum until a permanent chair has been identified by a national search.
