A close collaboration is established between the departments of neurology at Bispebjerg Hospital and Rigshospitalet. The aim of the collaboration is to coordinate activities and divide subspecialities between the two departments. Both departments provide clinical examination, treatment, care and rehabilitation to patients with neurological diseases. The departments serve the Copenhagen area and receive patients from all Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Greenland. Both departments are part of the Copenhagen University Hospital and teach medical students in neurology.
