The multidisciplinary team at the Epilepsy Program at Beth Israel Medical Center is actively involved in ongoing research for better methods of epilepsy diagnosis and treatment. Current research efforts include:
Clinical Medication Trials

The Search for Newer Tools and Better Ways
All the members of our team -- not just the epileptologists themselves -- are enthusiastic researchers. For instance, the team's neuropsychologist is researching new techniques to improve that discipline's delivery of care, and the team's nurse practitioners double as study coordinators, actively involved in the recruitment of patients and the administration of the projects.
Several times a year, the epilepsy program also hosts educational seminars and lectures for patients, families and the community. Recently, we organized our first such conference in Spanish and advertised strictly to the Spanish-speaking community.
The epilepsy team members are also frequent participants in and presenters to industry-wide conferences, including such prestigious annual conferences hosted by the American Epilepsy Society, the International Epilepsy Congress, and the American Academy of Neurology. These professional gatherings are opportunities for the epilepsy team members to stay abreast of the latest developments and to share what they have learned and discovered through their presentations.
