Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship Program

The Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship program is a one-year, ACGME-accredited program offering experience in the diagnosis and management of patients with epilepsy and neuromuscular disorders, video EEG monitoring in all age groups, ICU EEG monitoring, routine EEG, nerve conduction study, electromyogram (EMG),  evoked potentials, and neurophysiologic intraoperative monitoring (NIOM). The fellowship is offered in  two tracks: a combined EEG and EMG fellowship or a dedicated EMG fellowship. Upon completion of the program, fellows can choose to take an additional one-year epilepsy fellowship in our ACGME-accredited Epilepsy Fellowship program.

Training in our program will prepare Fellows for the independent practice of clinical neurophysiology, i.e. the measurement and assessment of function of the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems and skeletal muscles for the purpose of diagnosing, monitoring and treating neurological disorders.

We provide fellows with the opportunity to acquire a thorough understanding of clinical neurology, normal neurophysiology and abnormal findings that occur in various neurological disorders so that they can select and apply properly clinical neurophysiological procedures to evaluate and manage patients.

Fellowship training is based on supervised clinical work of increasing responsibility with both inpatients and outpatients in association with a foundation of organized instruction in basic neurosciences and neurophysiology.
