This is a one or two year fellowship designed to prepare the candidate for the American Board of Clinical Neurophysiology (ABCN) examination and to provide opportunities for in depth experience in various aspects of epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology. The Fellow, working with 5 ABCN certified electroencephalographers and 2 ABSM certified sleep specialists, will gain experience in the interpretation of adult, pediatric and neonatal studies including EEGs, EPs, surface and invasive CCTV-EEG presurgical telemetry monitoring, ICU and intraoperative monitoring, and sleep studies. The Fellow will participate in the comprehensive in- and out-patient evaluation and treatment of epilepsy including medical and surgical options.
The optimal second year of the fellowship is intended to allow a more intense focus in one or more areas to fit the needs of candidates aspiring to academic careers. Research opportunities for advanced fellows include: Autonomic effects of seizures and sleep, Clinical neurophysiological effects of AIDS, New localization techniques for epilepsy surgery, and the pathophysiology of Epilepsy. In addition, the program offers several ongoing treatment trials.
