Jakob Mrozewski, MD  

Jakob Mrozewski, MD
Behavioral Neurology & Neuropsychiatry Fellowship (2019-2020) Epilepsy Fellowship (2020-2021)

Jake was born in Chicago, IL, but spent much of childhood growing up in Poland, where his parents are from, and in Michigan. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Psychobiology from Swarthmore College, Swarthmore, PA and then his MD from Tufts University School of Medicine, Boston, MA. Over the course of his Neurology residency at University of Colorado, he carried forward his prior interests in behavioral neuroscience, while being additionally drawn toward the phenomenology, biochemistry, and technology surrounding the subspecialty of Epilepsy. A desire to explore the intersection between diseases common to Behavioral Neurology and Epilepsy led him to pursue both in succession as a dual fellowship candidate. In his free time, his appreciation for the underlying science of the brain only serves to enhance his desire to give his own brain the experiences it craves: beautiful hikes, nauseating snowboarding routes, and worldwide travels timed for the typical ‘off’ season of chosen locations.
