Epilepsy Fellowship

Epilepsy Fellowship

The McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University offers an ACGME-accredited Epilepsy fellowship with four positions available each year. Two positions are reserved for adult fellows and two positions are reserved for pediatric fellows. Fellows are eligible for the American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology (ABPN) boards in epilepsy.

The fellowship offers comprehensive training in EEG, both in the inpatient and outpatient settings. The program includes advanced training in surgical epilepsy, with exposure to both stereo EEG and subdural grid evaluations as well as device interpretation and management. There is additional training in intraoperative electrocorticography and functional mapping. In addition, fellows are trained in multiple epilepsy subspecialties, including but not limited to managing women with epilepsy, autoimmune epilepsy, and tumor-related epilepsy.

The ACGME-accredited training in Epilepsy must be preceded by the completion of a residency program in neurology or child neurology accredited in the United States or Canada.
