Jill Ostrem, MD

Medical Director and Division Chief, UCSF Movement Disorders and Neuromodulation Center
Neurologist

Dr. Jill Ostrem is a neurologist with a special interest in treating movement disorders, including Parkinson's disease, dystonia and essential tremor. She is medical director and division chief of the UCSF Movement Disorders and Neuromodulation Center.

Ostrem's research focuses on improving diagnosis, experimental therapeutics and technical innovations in surgery treatments for movement disorders. She works to develop improved deep brain stimulation (DBS) systems – implanted devices that deliver electrical impulses to treat movement disorders– and investigates optimal DBS brain targets. She also studies innovations in patient care, including telehealth – providing health care through advanced technologies – and new models for palliative care.

Ostrem earned her medical degree from the George Washington University. She completed a residency in neurology and a fellowship in movement disorders at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.

After joining UCSF in 2003, Ostrem helped establish its internationally recognized clinical, research and training center for the treatment of movement disorders. The center has a long history and expertise in treating Parkinson's disease and dystonia with DBS. Ostrem is a member of the American Neurological Association, American Academy of Neurology and International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society.
