This program is designed to produce the highest level of clinical competency, medical knowledge, and research skills and for our graduates to practice independently in an academic or subspecialty clinical program in the area of epilepsy. Our program will be unique due to the multidisciplinary nature of our clinical and research programs that go beyond patient care. This will include exposure to clinical trials, epilepsy comorbidities (such as psychiatric disorders), and patient quality of life into the realm of new technologies, treatments, and clinical trial models. At a minimum, fellows who complete one year fellowship program will have the basic ACGME competencies listed below.
Completion of accredited Neurology Residency or of a Sub-specialty Neurology Fellowship program.
