Epilepsy/EEG (2 Years)

Epilepsy/EEG (2 Years): This Fellowship includes one year of an ACGME-accredited Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship, followed by a second year of an ACGME-accredited Epilepsy Fellowship. Training includes extensive Video-EEG monitoring, intracranial EEG, surgical and medical treatment of epilepsy, epilepsy comorbidities such as neuropsychiatry, brain mapping, inpatient and outpatient epilepsy, EEG in all settings (ICU, inpatient, outpatient), brain stimulation for epilepsy, evoked potentials and sleep medicine/polysomnography, all including adults, children and neonates. All fellows are expected to participate in research. A two-year fellowship is highly recommended, but applicants may be accepted for one year of training if they have already completed (or are in the process of completing) a one- year fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology, EEG or Epilepsy. There are typically a total of four Epilepsy/EEG fellows along with one Neurosurgery Epilepsy fellow and one clinical ICU EEG fellow.
