The ACGME-accredited one year Clinical Neurophysiology-EEG Fellowship provides a broad and detailed exposure to a variety of neurophysiologic techniques including the full spectrum of electroencephalography (EEG) and evoked potentials (EP). This fellowship emphasizes the comprehensive assessment of epilepsy in adults and children. The fellow will have intensive video-EEG monitoring exposure in a 6 bed Epilepsy Monitoring Unit using state of the art neuroimaging techniques including PET, SPECT, and 3T MRI. The use of MEG has further strengthened our evaluation process of patients with complex epilepsy syndromes. In addition, there is extensive exposure to advanced electrodiagnostic techniques in cortical localization by use of intracranial grid/strip electrodes, stereo-EEG depth electrode arrays, cortical mapping, and other techniques. Fellows gain exposure to the role of neurophysiology in the presurgical evaluation for a wide range of epilepsy surgery techniques including laser ablation, neurostimulation, and traditional resective epilepsy surgery. Fellows also participate in an active long-term video EEG monitoring service outside the EMU and a busy routine and ambulatory EEG service. Opportunities are available to participate in epilepsy drug trials, epilepsy clinics and research studies led by the faculty. Electives in intraoperative monitoring (IOM), electromyography/nerve conduction studies (EMG/NCS), and sleep are offered, with at least two months concentrated in one of the three elective areas. The Clinical Neurophysiology training will lead to eligibility for the American Board of Clinical Neurophysiology and the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Certification in Clinical Neurophysiology.
We offer both Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology-EEG track fellowship options. Each fellowship includes one year of training accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). A two-year fellowship composed of both options completed sequentially may also be an option, depending upon applicant interest and slot availability.
Prerequisite: Each applicant is required to have completed an ACGME-accredited program in neurology, child neurology, neurodevelopment disabilities, or psychiatry in the United States or Canada. Applicants must qualify for licensure by the North Carolina Board of Medical Examiners and must be Board Eligible for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. For each fellowship a foreign medical graduates must have passed the E.C.F.M.G. and U.S.M.L.E. exams. Additional information may be obtained by visiting the ECFMG website.
