This is an integrated two-year fellowship in Clinical Epilepsy and Neurophysiology within the Clinical Neurosciences Program of the National Institutes of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), affiliated with the neurology residency program of the National Capital Consortium in Bethesda, MD.
Both years are ACGME-accredited, and upon completion fellows will be eligible for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Certification Examination in the sub-specialties of Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology. The focus of epilepsy research at NINDS is on developing new methods for evaluation and treatment of medically refractory epilepsy, emphasizing neuroimaging approaches to study the relation between brain structure and function, and to understand the mechanisms of action of antiepileptic drugs.
Upon completion of this two-year program, fellows will have received comprehensive training in the evaluation and treatment of patients with epilepsy, as well as gained experience and expertise in clinical research, equipping them to pursue academic careers in epilepsy.
