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

Application information

The prerequisite for our program is successful completion of an ACGME-accredited residency in adult or pediatric neurology in an accredited U.S. or Canadian program.

To apply, submit a curriculum vitae, personal statement, medical school diploma, 3 current letters of recommendation (including a letter from the residency program director), USMLE 1 and 2 (CK/CS) and 3 scores, and other qualifying information for candidacy to:
