Ganga Navada, M.D.

Hello and welcome to MUSC Neurology and, of course, beautiful Charleston!

A West Virginia (country roads) native, I find myself loving this beautiful beach-side town. I was born and raised in Clarksburg, WV and did my undergraduate training at the University of Rochester in upstate NY. I then found myself back in WV for medical school at Marshall University before planting myself in Charleston.

Time and time again I look back and am so thankful I chose MUSC Neurology as my training program. The program itself has an unbeatable clinical/research background; anything you could want academically is made available to you here at MUSC. The breadth of cases that come to MUSC and that are seen by residents is unbeatable, from vascular to autoimmune to epileptic. Mentors are always available to discuss your plans and encourage you to achieve what you did not think was possible. I feel very lucky to also say that I have met my best friends in this program. The residents in this program are not just close friends; we are family to each other. Aside from the great clinical training, this is one of the biggest things that drew me to the program and what I encourage applicants to look for as the process starts. I am very excited to say that I will be staying at MUSC for a two-year fellowship in Neuro-Critical Care in our ever-busy Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit.

In my free time, you can find me on the beach or at the local breweries. Charleston has so much to offer, from the stunning scenery to the incredible restaurants. You can find me at these places with my co-residents, because I can’t get enough of them! The support here is unwavering and I’m so happy to call this place my home.
