ACGME-accredited one year Epilepsy Fellowship. The fellowship provides detailed exposure to the full spectrum of electroencephalography (EEG) studies and management of epilepsy. The fellowship emphasizes the comprehensive treatment of epilepsy in children and adults.

The fellow will have intensive video-EEG monitoring exposure in a six-bed epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU), using state-of-the-art neuroimaging techniques including PET, SPECT and 3T MRI. The use of MEG has further strengthened our evaluation of patients with complex epilepsy syndromes.

The goals of the Epilepsy Fellowship are: To develop skilled subspecialists in epilepsy with expertise in the total care of the epilepsy patient, ranging from medical to surgical treatment of epilepsy, to management of comorbidities; and to train excellent electroencephalographers, which includes diverse exposure to pediatric, adult and critical care EEG along with a robust experience in intracranial EEG monitoring for epilepsy surgery planning.

Epilepsy Prerequisite: Each applicant is required to have completed an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-accredited residency program in neurology, child neurology or neurodevelopment disabilities in the U.S. 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.
