Pediatric Epilepsy

One position is available annually to begin training on July 1. The Clinical Neurophysiology (Pediatric Epilepsy) program is two years in length with the first year being ACGME-accredited. Highly qualified applicants should complete pediatric neurology residency/fellowship training no later than June 30 and be committed to a future career in academic pediatric neurology with special expertise in pediatric epilepsy. Training in EEG, EEG-video monitoring, invasive monitoring with subdural electrodes, and outpatient and inpatient epilepsy management is supplemented by an extensive lecture series in clinical neurophysiology. Fellows are expected to complete a clinical research project during their training.

Preference is given to graduates of US 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 Clinical Neurophysiology. Highly qualified graduates of pediatric neurology training programs outside the US are encouraged to apply. IMGs must be ECFMG certified.
