Epilepsy Fellowship

Overview

The Epilepsy Fellowship is an ACGME-accredited, one-year program that allows fellows to pursue either adult or pediatric-focused training. Fellows spend time developing skills related to diagnosis and management of epilepsy and related disorders in both the inpatient and outpatient environment.

Significant focus is placed on training in EEG, pre-surgical evaluation of epilepsy, peripheral and central neurostimulatory devices, exposure to imaging modalities, and neuropsychological testing. We accept one to two fellows annually for a one-year experience.
