BIOGRAPHY


Dr. Gerard is an assistant professor of neurology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and a neurologist on staff at Northwestern Memorial Hospital where she is part of the interdisciplinary care team at the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center. Her practice focuses on the medical and surgical treatment of epilepsy with special attention to the concerns of women with epilepsy including pregnancy and contraception. She is the director of the Women with Epilepsy Program and sees patients as part of the Northwestern Women's Neurology Center.

She was a Klingenstein scholar at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York and a neurology resident at Columbia University Medical Center New York Presbyterian Hospital. Following residency, she stayed on at Columbia University to complete a two-year fellowship in epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology. She joined Northwestern Memorial Hospital in 2009.

Dr. Gerard encourages her patients to take an active role in their care. She states the following: There are often several possible approaches to any given medical decision. The physician should provide a patient with appropriate information from clinical experience and medical literature. Together, the patient and her doctor can decide how best to apply this information to her personal circumstances and arrive at a practical treatment plan.
