Maria E. Baldwin, MD

  • Clinical Assistant Professor

Dr. Baldwin’s clinical and research interests focus on the care and treatment of the patient with epilepsy and the role of the EEG in the ICU setting.  Much of her clinical research has been centered on the post cardiac arrest and status epilepticus populations. She has been an active educator in the teaching of epilepsy, EEG and the neurological care of the post arrest patient.
