Joseph Broderick, MD, is the Director at the UC Neuroscience Institute, and has been a Neurologist with UC Physicians since 1987.  Dr. Broderick became a professor of Neurology at the University of Cincinnati in 1996, and has been the Albert Barnes Voorheis Chair for the Department of Neurology at the UC College of Medicine since 2000.  He has served as a courtesy staff member in 15 community hospitals for over 20 years, and is currently the principal investigator for the national coordinating center for StrokeNET, a network of 25 regional stroke centers.

Dr. Broderick is an internationally recognized expert on the treatment and underlying causes of stroke. Dr. Broderick’s two-fold passion is to improve the treatment and outcome of stroke patients world-wide, using the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky region as a model, and to have world class patient care and research for all areas of neurologic disease at the University of Cincinnati Neuroscience Institute.  As a native Cincinnatian who is from a family with a large number of local physicians, Dr. Broderick sees the Cincinnati region as a wonderful place to live and practice medicine.

Dr. Broderick’s contributions to advancing stroke treatment, research, and education worldwide are reflected in multiple awards including the Daniel Drake Medal at the University of Cincinnati in 2010 and the national American Heart Association Clinical Research Prize in 2011.  He has also been awarded with the William B. Feinberg Award for Excellence in Clinical Stroke by the Stroke Council of the American Heart Association, the Healthcare Heroes Award for Innovation by the Cincinnati Business Courier, and a Samuel Kaplan Visionary Research Award by the American Heart Association.  In addition to his many lifetime achievements, Dr. Broderick serves the Cincinnati community as a Board Member at UC Health.
