Two positions are available each year for a 1-year Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) – accredited Pediatric Epilepsy Fellowship. Preference is given to graduates of United States Pediatric Neurology training programs, who are board-eligible in Pediatric Neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and who wish to obtain training that qualifies them to sit for the ABPN exam in Epilepsy. Highly qualified international graduates of pediatric neurology training programs are encouraged to apply, though they must have certification from the Educational Commission of Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG).
Interested applicants must provide the following:
- Completed application
- Current CV
- A personal statement (indicating their interest in Pediatric Epilepsy)
- USMLE scores (Step 3 must be completed, prior to beginning your fellowship training)
- Three letters of recommendation, with at least one from a faculty member from the applicant’s primary residency program.
The Clinical Competency Committee and Program Evaluation Committee will review all applications before extending an interview offer to qualified candidates. These committees and other faculty will review all interviewed candidates before extending a position in the fellowship program.
