Muhammad T. Al-Lozi, MD, MS, professor of neurology, is honored for his dedication and exceptional skill in educating the next generation of distinguished neurologists.
On the Washington University faculty for more than 22 years, Al-Lozi consistently has been recognized for his near-encyclopedic knowledge of neurology and his ability to pass along his knowledge in a clear and creative fashion. A five-time recipient of the Sven Eliasson Award for Teaching Excellence in the Department of Neurology, he serves as director of the department’s neuromuscular medicine training program and is co-chief of the clinical neurophysiology program and director of the electrodiagnostic laboratory.
A renowned specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, he is actively engaged in research and is a collaborator on two National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants examining recurrent laryngeal nerve injuries and HIV-associated sensory neuropathy. He is listed in Best Doctors in America and leads by example, with a visible passion for patient care. He is a firm believer in the Socratic method of teaching, often engaging residents and fellows in case conversations to evolve their critical thinking and diagnostic skills. He also has volunteered his time beyond faculty responsibilities to teach an elective course for fellows in electromyography and nerve conduction studies. In recognition of his superior educational skills, he also is the recipient of the A.B. Baker Teacher Recognition Award from the American Academy of Neurology.
Al-Lozi received his medical degree from King Edward Medical College in Lahore, Pakistan. He completed his internal medicine residency at Jordan University Hospital in Amman, Jordan, and residency in neurology at Johns Hopkins Hospitals in Baltimore. He then pursued an advanced neuromuscular fellowship at Washington University before joining the faculty in 1994.
