Neurophysiology Fellowship

(Epilepsy/EEG/EMG)

Overview

The Epilepsy Center of the University of Pittsburgh accepts up to one fellow per year in Pediatric Neurophysiology with an emphasis on either Epilepsy/EEG or EMG. This program is accredited through the University of Pittsburgh, and, as such, allows for a one- or two-year combined adult and pediatric neurophysiology experience. The two-year program provides opportunity for involvement in clinical research in pediatric neurophysiology/epilepsy. Pre-requisites for entry into this program include completion of a minimum of two years of an ACGME-accredited residency program in pediatrics, completion of a three-year ACGME-accredited residency program in child neurology, and documentation of completion of USMLE and (if a foreign medical graduate) ECFMG examinations.

The Division of Child Neurology houses a comprehensive EEG laboratory that provides outpatient, inpatient, and consultative services to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC and Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC, a six-bed Epilepsy Monitoring Unit, ambulatory monitoring capability, several weekly epilepsy clinics, and an active epilepsy surgery program.
