Our Fellowship Program is one year in duration, with the possibility of a second year for those who wish to also acquire research exposure and expertise. During the initial one-year period, each fellow works with our diverse faculty to achieve comprehensive exposure to the care of patients with a broad range of neuromuscular diseases, as well as electromyographic, molecular genetic and neuromuscular pathology services.
We are home to the University of Miami ALS Center (that includes the Kessenich Family ALS Clinic), adult MDA clinic, and CMT/Neuropathy Center of Excellence. Additional specialty clinics are focused on myositis and myasthenia gravis. Our fellows receive electromyography training in outpatient and inpatient settings, as well as neuropathology exposure through regular teaching sessions at the multi-head microscope.

Board certification in Neurology (American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, ABPN) is not required at the time of application or beginning of neuromuscular training. However, Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine board eligibility requires a prior Neurology (ABPN) or Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ABPMR) board certification.
