The Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine has expanded its neuroscience program.

The university is creating separate departments of neurosurgery and neurology.

Joseph I. Shapiro, dean of the school of medicine, says Anthony Alberico will become chairman of the department of neurosurgery.

Alberico received his medical degree from the Temple University School of Medicine and completed residency training at the Medical College of Virginia.

He is experienced in the management of spinal disorders and in developing advances in spine care. Alberico is board-certified in neurosurgery and joined Marshall in 2007.
