About the program

The American College of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), through the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), certifies our Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship Program.  Upon successful completion of our fellowship program, the fellow is eligible to sit for the examination for the  Added Qualification in Clinical Neurophysiology as well as for the ABEM examination.

The program encompasses acquisition of knowledge in clinical neurophysiology testing and electives, as follows:

  • Electroencephalography (EEG)/ evoked potential (EP) testing (5 months)
  • Electromyography (EMG)/ nerve conduction velocity (NCV) studies (5 months)
  • Electives (2 months), which may include pediatric neurophysiology, neurorehabilitation, polysomnography, botulinum toxin administration, and intraoperative monitoring


EEG and EMG seminars are held weekly to provide didactic instruction for proper performance of these studies and interpretation of results.

The fellow attends epilepsy case conferences to present epilepsy surgery cases and discuss the candidates.
