Rebecca Kate Miller-Kuhlmann
Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
BioRebecca Miller-Kuhlmann, MD, is a board certified Neurologist and a Clinical Assistant Professor of Neurology & Neurological Sciences. Her clinical interest focus on the diagnosis and treatment of neurologic conditions. She loves clinical medicine and works actively to maintain a wide-breadth of knowledge in order to best treat complex patients with multiple neurologic conditions. Her fellowship training in Clinical Neurology had primary foci in movement disorders, memory/cognitive disorders, neuromuscular medicine/EMG/NCS studies, and therapeutic applications of botulinum toxin with supplementary training in multiple sclerosis/neuroimmunology, epilepsy and headache medicine.
As a former public school teacher, she completed an honors certificate in medical education from Stanford during her residency training and is passionate about medical education. She served as an education chief resident and continues to deeply enjoy working with medical students and residents both in the classroom and in the clinic. She co-directs the neurology preclinical block for medical school and in 2020 has had the priviledge to begin co-directing the Science of Medicine preclinical course which comprises ~40% of the preclinical curriculum as well as a novel communication coaching program for Neurology residents.
Her additional academic interests include mitigation of the epidemic of physician burnout, for which she is a graduate of the American Academy of Neurology's Live Well Lead Well Leadership program and has co-developed and directs a wellness program for neurology residents and fellows. On becoming faculty she began serving as the Neurology Department Wellbeing Director for faculty as well. She has also completed the Stanford CELT (clinical education leadership training) program for developing skills in quality improvement and enjoys teaching and fostering quality improvement work within the Stanford Neurology Residency
