Fellowship

Two positions are available beginning July 1, for our ACGME-approved 2-year fellowship in Pediatric Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology. 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 if they are committed to expanding pediatric neurology/pediatric epilepsy services in their home country. We typically require that foreign pediatric neurologists present a letter from an institution in their home country documenting a commitment to expanding pediatric epilepsy services upon completion of the applicant’s training.

Serious candidates should send a letter of inquiry and a CV to:
