The brain is still a mystery. I believe we all learn from each other. Every medical team member (physician, nurse, student) and the patient and family must work together for the best outcomes.
Eileen Broomall, MD



As a pediatric neurologist at Cincinnati Children’s, I specialize in caring for patients who need critical care. This includes children with a severe brain injury, spinal muscular atrophy and other neuromuscular conditions.

I was inspired to be a neurologist as a medical student. I enjoyed learning the process of taking a medical history and performing a neurologic exam to figure out the root of the problem. Then using that information to choose the right type of MRI or test to confirm the diagnosis.

The brain is still a mystery. I believe we all learn from each other. Every medical team member (physician, nurse, student) and the patient and family must work together for the best outcomes.

I chose child neurology because I love being part of a bigger team to help a child grow into his or her best self.

In my free time, I love traveling. I’ve visited Vietnam every year since 2015 for medical teaching projects.
