ACGME-accredited one year Epilepsy Fellowship provides detailed exposure to the full spectrum of electroencephalography (EEG) studies and clinical management of epilepsy. The fellowship emphasizes the comprehensive treatment of epilepsy in children and adults. Fellows 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 many other techniques. The training will lead to eligibility for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Certification in Epilepsy.

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.

Epilepsy Prerequisite: Each applicant is required to have completed an ACGME-accredited program in neurology, child neurology or neurodevelopment disabilities 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.

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. The institution sponsors only the J-1 Visa, which you must have at the time of your application.
