Personal HistoryFor over 20 years Dr. Kathleen Currey has been taking care of children with neurologic disorders at the University of Maryland. She joined the Division of Child Neurology in 1987 and she became part of the SIDS Institute for a few years in the early 90â?Ts. There she helped evaluate babies and children with sleep studies and was part of the Pediatric Sleep Disorders Center at its inception. Since the late 90â?Ts she has re-focused her clinical efforts on pediatric neurology, taking care of children with many different neurologic conditions.
Because she found it particularly rewarding to take care of children with epilepsy, she completed a Clinical Neurophysiology fellowship from 2008-2010 while maintaining her commitment on a part time basis to the Division of Child Neurology. In addition to focusing on providing care for children with epilepsy since completing the Clinical Neurophysiology fellowship, she also has developed a Pediatric Epilepsy Program as part of the Comprehensive Epilepsy Program at the University of Maryland. The Pediatric Epilepsy Program has both inpatient and outpatient components. Dedicated epilepsy clinics have been established and inpatient continuous video EEG monitoring is also available to evaluate children with epilepsy or suspected epilepsy. A dedicated pediatric epilepsy monitoring unit is being developed. Continuous video EEG monitoring has been provided to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit as part of a collaborative effort to develop the Neonatal Neuro ICU.
Dr. Currey has also been working with the Eunice Kennedy Schriver NICHD Brain and Tissue Bank for Developmental Disorders since 2005.
