The Drexel University College of Medicine Department of Neurology offers three positions in a one-year fellowship training program in clinical neurophysiology. This fully ACGME-accredited fellowship program provides training in electromyography (EMG), nerve conduction studies (NCS) and electroencephalography (EEG), as well as the broader evaluation and treatment of patients with neuromuscular disorders and epilepsy. There is also exposure to sleep studies and sleep medicine as well as pediatric clinical neurophysiology.
A particular strength of the program is the flexibility that is offered to each fellow to pursue his or her area of interest; each fellow can tailor the curriculum to meet his or her educational goals. Graduates are qualified to take the examination for certification in clinical neurophysiology offered by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN). Fellows who wish to become certified by the American Board of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine (ABNEM) will be able to meet the clinical requirements of this board as well, if they choose to concentrate in EMG/neuromuscular medicine during the fellowship.
The program offers ample opportunity for research and teaching experience with the expectation that the fellow will complete a basic or clinical project during the course of the year.
Graduates of the program have gone on to positions in private and academic practices all over the United States. The flexibility of the program provides each fellow the opportunity to pursue his or her individual career goals.
