Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship Program

We offer two fellowship positions per year, one each with a concentration in EEG/Epilepsy or EMG/Neuromuscular Disease. During the year of training, nine months are spent in the respective areas of concentration, with three months in the other discipline.

Exposure to sleep medicine, pediatric clinical neurophysiology, and intraoperative methods are interspersed throughout the year. The Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship Program, under the leadership of Dr. Murthy Vishnubhakat, is an ACGME approved program and provides fellows who have completed an accredited neurology residency training program with extensive training and experience in the core competencies of patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, and system based practice.
