Our Neuromuscular Medicine Fellowship offers active participation in a program that combines comprehensive training in clinical neuromuscular disease, electrodiagnostic medicine (including evoked potentials), and muscle and nerve histopathology. Our faculty expertise and institutional resources cover all aspects of adult and pediatric neuromuscular disease with additional exposure to rehabilitation medicine. Opportunities exist to participate in intramural or extramurally funded basic, translational, and clinical research projects. This program can be tailored toward individuals interested in academic or private practice careers.
Fellows will provide clinical care in a predominately outpatient setting. Fellows will be responsible for evaluating and diagnosing adult and pediatric patients with neuromuscular disorders and will perform and interpret advanced techniques in electrodiagnostic medicine under faculty supervision. Such techniques include routine nerve conduction studies, blink responses, repetitive nerve stimulation (Jolly test), needle electromyography, single fiber EMG, and evoked potential studies (visual, brainstem auditory, and somatosensory). This work will take place at the EMG Laboratory located in Sparks Center at UAB Hospital. Evaluation of inpatients with neuromuscular disease is also provided through bedside studies in the hospital or assessment in the EMG Laboratory.

Full licensure in the State of Alabama (State of Alabama medical license, Alabama Controlled Substance Certificate, and Federal DEA) is required to participate in this fellowship program. Successful completion of all three steps of the USMLE is necessary for Alabama licensure.
