Biography

Christiana Hall, M.D., is a Professor in the Departments of Neurology and Neurological Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center. She specializes in neurocritical care and the treatment of strokes.

Dr. Hall earned her medical degree at the Medical College of Georgia. She completed a residency in general surgery at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine before returning to the Medical College of George for a residency in neurology. Dr. Hall gained advanced training in neurocritical care and vascular neurology through two fellowships at the University of Texas at Houston.

Certified in neurology and vascular neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and in neurocritical care by the United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties, she joined the UT Southwestern faculty in 2008.

At UT Southwestern, Dr. Hall was the founding Director of the Neurocritical Fellowship Program. She is the Chief of the Neurology Service at Parkland Memorial Hospital, where she chairs the Parkland Neurology Advisory Council and the Neuroscience Principal Investigator Committee. She has previously served as Interim Director of the Neurocritical Care Division and Medical Director of the Neurocritical Care Unit at Parkland.

Dr. Hall is a Fellow of the American Neurological Association and a member of the American Academy of Neurology, the American Stroke Association, and the Society of Critical Care Medicine. She has also been active in the Neurocritical Care Society since its inception in 2003, serving eight years on its Board of Directors, one term on its Executive Committee, and 11 years on its Research Committee. She was elected to fellowship in the Neurocritical Care Society in 2013.

Her research has focused on treatments for subarachnoid and intracerebral hemorrhage, and she has served as a principal investigator for large studies on these conditions. She has also focused on the potential therapeutic effects of regulating glucose in critically ill neurological patients, and she served as a principal investigator for the SHINE trial, a multi-site, randomized controlled trial of glucose regulation in acute stroke patients with Type 2 diabetes.

A prolific presenter and author, Dr. Hall has contributed chapters to books including Monitoring In Neurocritical Care and the Neurocritical Care Society Board Review Course.
