This is a one-year ACGME accredited fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology (CNP).
We received ACGME accreditation with commendation for up to three CNP fellowship positions and have 10 CNP faculty members. The CNP fellowship is flexible based on the educational needs of the applicant. The most common track consists of at least eight months of EEG/Epilepsy/EMU and up to four months of EMG/Neuromuscular. During the EEG/Epilepsy rotations, fellows also perform two half-days of the clinic (Epilepsy) along with reading EEGs daily. Epilepsy Monitoring Unit rotation is required for at least four weeks out of the eight months of EEG/Epilepsy/EMU. The EMG/Neuromuscular rotation consists of daily EMG/NCV studies except for Tuesday, which is an all-day Neuromuscular clinic. The fellowship can also accommodate rotations in our 14-bed EMU and six Status Epilepticus portable units. Fellows are also provided with clinical research opportunities. A second year is optional but recommended for Epilepsy/CNP Fellows, who could consider pursuing our ACGME accredited Epilepsy fellowship.
The fellowship runs from July 1st through June 30th. The application period is June through August, with notifications made in September and October. Applicants must have completed an ACGME accredited residency in Neurology, Child Neurology, or Psychiatry.
