From 1983 to 1999 Dr. Shewmon was director of UCLA’s Pediatric Clinical Neurophysiology Laboratory and played a key role in the emergence of UCLA as one of the preeminent centers in the world for pediatric epilepsy surgery. In 2011 he became Clinical Professor Emeritus at UCLA while continuing as Chief of Neurology at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center.
