Residents are selected for the CNP fellowship from eligible applicants based upon their preparedness, ability, aptitude, academic credentials, communication skills, and personal qualities.

No discrimination is made based upon sex, race, age, religion, color, national origin, disability, or veteran status.

All applicants are sent an aplication form to complete. Necessary information to be provided include education, training, and certifications to determine eligibility. Applicants are asked to specify the area within CNP in which they wish to subspecialize (EEG/Epilepsy or EMG/Neuromuscular). Three letters of reference are also required.

Completed applications are reviewed initially by the program director and the laboratory director of the subspecialty for which the fellow is applying. Approximately 20% to 40% of the eligible applicants are invited for personal interviews.

Invited appicants are interviewed by the program director, at least one laboratory director, and as many CNP faculty as possible, particularly in the area in which the applicant wishes to subspecialize. Interviewers rate each applicant independently.

A CNP faculty meeting is held after interviews are completed at which time applicant ratings are reviewed. Subspecialty lab directors each provide a summary of those candidates applying for their subspecialty. Decisions regarding appointments to the residency are then made by concensus.
