The Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship is an ACGME-accredited, one-year program that is desigend to provide a strong foundation in EEG, EMG, IOM, and/or sleep. Fellows can tailor their one year experience towards the desired skills that will allow them to succeed in their career. The fellowship is designed to be flexible in allowing for as much or as little exposure to each of these fields.
Scientific investigation is critical to the mission of University of Utah Health, the Department of Neurology, and for the development of fellows.
You will engage in research with the requirement of presenting findings at Neurology Grand Rounds and the goal of presenting at a national meeting.
Several didactic sessions will complement your clinical training, including
- Weekly lectures in Clinical Neurophysiology
- Bi-weekly Epilepsy Surgical Case Conferences
- Weekly EEG review sessions
- Monthly Epilepsy journal club
- Weekly Grand Rounds
- Quality Improvement Project
- In addition, the Department of Neurology has a full schedule of teaching conferences.
During your training you will be exposed to different areas of clinical neurophysiology. Your clinical training will include
- EMG/Nerve Conduction Studies
- Sleep Studies
- Intraoperative Neuromonitoring
- Adult and Pediatric EEG
- Long term video EEG monitoring (scalp and intracranial EEG)
- ICU EEG
- Must be BC/BE neurologists or individuals who have completed their ACGME-accredited neurology residency training by the fellowship start date.
