This ACGME-accredited fellowship provides intensive training in diagnosis and management of patients with neuromuscular diseases, epilepsy and sleep disorders with emphasis on electrodiagnostic techniques.

This fellowship provides strong foundation in all aspects of Clinical Neurophysiology and is accredited by the RRC. It meets eligibility requirements to sit for the sub-specialty board examination in Clinical Neurophysiology.

There is access to a large teaching faculty in the Neuromuscular/EMG, Neuromuscular Ultrasound, Epilepsy/EEG/EP, and Sleep units of the Neurology department at URMC.

What Our Fellows Say...

Reddy

"I did my two year Clinical Neurophysiology/Epilepsy fellowship in URMC. The best aspect of the program is one on one teaching by attendings and emeritus. The program is very well balanced between work which is not overwhelming and academics. Dr. Liu and Dr. Logigian have didactics very well structured and they present new information stepwise without overburdening lectures. They make us grow as teachers as well."

"Also, having EMG and EEG spread out throughout the week for first year helped me continue to maintain EMG skills even after graduating from Epilepsy year. This is a major plus if you are looking to pursue EMG and EEG in your career. I also like the continuity clinics over a period of two years which allowed me to experience taking medically refractory epilepsy patients through epilepsy surgery. This program gives a well rounded experience to include adult EMGs, pediatric, adult, ICU EEGs interpretation, IOM monitoring opportunity, clinical research opportunities, epilepsy management, approach to Epilepsy surgery and strong basics about instrumentation and managing EEG/ EMU labs and units.Overall, the program gave me confidence to take up a Epilepsy directorship position in an academic place."
