Laura Stein, MD

Assistant Professor of Clinical Neurology

I have been an associate program director of the Neurology Residency Program since 2018. I teach residents on multiple inpatient services as well as in outpatient continuity clinic and stroke clinics. I also lead didactic sessions and workshops for resident onboarding and in our resident lecture series. I am particularly interested in expanding resident exposure to structured experiences in medical education and quality improvement and currently mentor multiple residents per year in medical education and quality improvement projects. In 2020, I was honored to receive the University of Pennsylvania Neurology Residents teaching award.

I received my masters in medical education from the University of Pennsylvania in 2018. I have been a member of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Residency-In-Training Examination Committee since 2019. I have also been a member of the American Heart Association (AHA) Stroke Professional Education Committee since 2016 and currently serve as the Vice Chair of this committee.

Clinically, I function predominantly as a neurohospitalist and attend on the stroke inpatient and consult services, the neurology ward service, and the PPMC consult service. I am dedicated to ensuring delivery of high-quality neurologic care across our system and currently am the physician co-lead for our neurovascular disease team, which spans our six-hospital network, as well as our HUP inpatient neurology unit-based quality improvement team.
