Dr. Carpenter is the Medical Director of Clinical Stroke Services at Washington University, and is a co-director of the Washington University Moyamoya Center. He received his M.D. degree from Washington University School of Medicine in 1983, and trained in neurology at Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Hospital, completing his residency in 1988. After completing a research fellowship in stroke and cerebrovascular disease at Washington University, he remained on the faculty of the Department of Neurology at Washington University until 1993, when he went into private practice, maintaining an emphasis in stroke and cerebrovascular disease. He returned to the faculty in 2005, as a full-time clinical faculty member, and is active in the care of patients with stroke in the hospital, and of patients with both stroke and general neurological problems in the outpatient clinic, as well as supporting clinical research and cerebrovascular disease.
