Our Memory Program

Welcome to the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine’s Memory Program, which draws on the knowledge and experience of a multidisciplinary team of professionals at one of the country’s leading academic medical centers. Our Memory Program includes experienced physicians and researchers in neurology, psychiatry and other specialties.

Because memory problems can have many causes, we take a holistic approach to assessing, diagnosing, treating and managing each individual. We know that every patient is different, and treating memory loss due to stroke requires a different strategy than preserving memory in a person with late-onset Alzheimer’s disease.

We encourage patients, family members and other caregivers to contact our Memory Program to learn more about assessments, clinical services and research into memory problems. Our physicians also take part in leading-edge clinical trials that may offer new options to appropriate patients.

Please contact us if you would like more information about scheduling an assessment, taking part in a clinical trial, or learning more about our Memory Program.

For more information, contact Carmen Perez, (305) 243-0184, MemoryProgram@miami.edu.
