- Ample research opportunities with clinical neurophysiology faculty well-known for their wide-ranging interests.
- Scholarly interests in basic science to translational and clinical research in diagnosis and management of epilepsy syndromes and neuromuscular diseases.
Annual Lab volumes
- Over 2500 EMGs
- Over 3500 EEGs
Equipment and technologists
- EEG: State of the art epilepsy monitoring with numerous video-EEG systems
- 7 dedicated LTM/cEEG review stations for fellows and attendings co-located well apportioned reading rooms
- EMG: 7 state of the art net-worked Nicolet EMG machines linked to an EMG database accessible to all fellow, attending and technician computers
- Neuromuscular ultrasound program
- A highly experienced group of dedicated EEG and EMG technologists
Candidates should be in the process of successfully completing a Neurology residency, and have a major interest in clinical neurophysiology (e.g., EEG/Epilepsy or EMG/Neuromuscular disease or both). Beyond fellowship, they may have practice or academic aspirations. Either way, this ACGME-accredited fellowship meets eligibility requirements for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) sub-specialty board in Clinical Neurophysiology.
