Epilepsy Fellowship

Epilepsy Fellowship

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, part of the USC Keck Medical System, is pleased to announce openings for a newly-approved ACGME-accredited pediatric epilepsy fellowship. Our group has considerable clinical and neurophysiologic resources. We have 5 pediatric board-certified epileptologists with a busy epilepsy surgery program offering ECoG-guided resections, phase II studies with implanted grids/strips and depths, stereo-EEG, EEG source localization and minimally invasive laser ablation.

We have a large VNS program and are initiating pediatric RNS. We follow over 100 children on either ketogenic diet or modified Atkins diet with the help of two full time dietitians. We have a robust epilepsy drug study program with over 10 active studies. CHLA has an active outpatient EEG lab, a dedicated pediatric EMU, and neuro-critical care EEG monitoring. Our Comprehensive Epilepsy Clinic includes an Epilepsy Surgery Clinic, Diet Therapy Clinic, Epilepsy Genetics Clinic and New Onset Seizure Clinic. All fellows have the opportunity to participate in research projects during their fellowship, mentored by one of our epileptologists. We have a strong epilepsy genetics lab with all genetic testing now done in house at CHLA. Being the largest Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, we serve a diverse population and see the full spectrum of pediatric epilepsy.
