Dr. Bailey is a neuropsychologist at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center and is a Professor of Neurology at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. He also serves as the Director of the Neuropsychology Section of the Neurological Institute, Director of the UH Concussion Management Program, and Director of the Adult Neuropsychology Post-Doctoral Fellowship Program.

Dr. Bailey completed his graduate training at Penn State University before completing an internship in neuropsychology at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and served as the chief fellow in neuropsychology at the University of Virginia School of Medicine.

At University Hospitals in Cleveland, Dr. Bailey has worked collaboratively with multiple departments and specialties to update, integrate, and standardize concussion management services across the hospital system, including developing a multidisciplinary concussion specialist network to improve concussion identification and management on and off the sports field. Clinically, he has assisted in the neuropsychological management of concussions in all contexts, including work at all sports levels. 

His current clinical roles include being the neuropsychological consultant to the Cleveland Browns, the Cleveland Monsters, and assisting in the management of sports concussion at multiple colleges/universities, high schools, and youth sports organizations in northeast Ohio. Dr. Bailey also assists in the clinical management of a wide variety of neurological conditions, including patients considering DBS or epilepsy surgery and patients with memory disorders. 

Dr. Bailey is active in several national neuropsychology organizations, including being the current president of the Sports Neuropsychology Society. He regularly makes invited addresses and is the principal investigator on several research projects focused on brain health, including a particular interest in advancing our understanding of how to evaluate and treat concussion.

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.

As of December 31, 2016, Christopher Bailey did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
