Christopher S. Calder M.D., Ph.D., was appointed Interim Chair of the University of New Mexico Neurology Department in January 2016. Gary A. Rosenberg M.D. stepped down after a 30-year tenure to be the Director of a new Memory and Aging Center at the University of New Mexico.

Dr. Calder attended medical school at the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand, where he also obtained a Ph.D. in peripheral nerve research. His neurology residency training was at the University of Rochester. Dr. Calder also had extensive training in Internal Medicine.

Dr. Calder had been the Medical Director of the Clinical Neurosciences Center at the University of New Mexico until he became the Interim Chair. Dr. Calder was a founding partner of a large private practice in upstate New York prior to coming to the University of New Mexico in 2012. Dr. Calder has been an investigator in many clinical trials in various areas of neurologic research.

Dr. Calder has enjoyed teaching of medical students and residents and expanding the Neurology Faculty at the University of New Mexico. He has continued to participate in clinical research.
