Candidates should have a focus on an academic career. This fellowship meets eligibility requirements for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) Epilepsy and the American Board of Clinical Neurophysiology (ABCN) the Epilepsy track. It is preferred that a candidate have prior training in a Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship, which we can coordinate. Selected applicants may also combine a year of clinical training with two years of formal research training through the Fellowship in Experimental Therapeutics, a program continuously funded by the NIH since 1989 and specifically designed to train translational and clinical researchers in neurology.

  • 2 fellows/year - ACGME accredited Epilepsy Fellowship Program
  • 1-2 fellows/year NIH-funded Experimental Therapeutics Fellowship Program
