Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowships

Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowships

The ACGME-accredited dual Fellowship Programs in Clinical Neurophysiology and Epilepsy at Barrow Neurological Institute offers a two-year arrangement of clinical training for those who have completed an ACGME-accredited neurology residency. The program’s goal is for trainees to develop expertise in:

  • Diagnosis and treatment of primary central nervous system seizure disorders and all forms of epilepsy
  • Assessment and management of all aspects of seizure and epilepsy care
  • Reading routine and continuous EEGs, evoked potentials, intraoperative monitoring studies, and intracranial EEG
  • Pre-surgical workup and intracranial EEG monitoring of patients with epilepsy
  • Outpatient clinical care of patients with epilepsy including: management of seizures with antiseizure medications (AEDs), vagus nerve stimulator (VNS), responsive neurostimulation system (RNS), deep brain stimulator (DBS), and modified ketogenic diet
  • Techniques of clinical research

First and/or Second year: Our training fellowship programs include clinical training in outpatient Epilepsy Clinic, primary care for patients in the 12-bed Epilepsy Monitoring Unit, long-term EEG monitoring of ICU and critical patients, reading outpatient and inpatient of evoked potential studies, clinical research, and elective experience in intraoperative monitoring (IOM) or electromyography (EMG). We would consider candidates desiring one year of fellowship.

Upon completion of the two-year training, the candidate will be eligible to sit for both clinical neurophysiology and epilepsy board examinations.
