Mayo Clinic's neurophysiology programs will prepare you for an academic career by providing you with experience in teaching, research and clinical studies. After completing your training, you will have the knowledge and experience necessary to establish and supervise a clinical neurophysiology laboratory in a teaching institution or integrated group practice.
The Clinical Neurophysiology, Electroencephalography (EEG), Epilepsy fellowship is an integrated program, encompassing EEG and epilepsy. The fellowship experience can be one or two years, depending on your clinical interests.
The EEG portion includes both didactic and clinical experiences. The epilepsy portion of the program is designed for those who wish to acquire knowledge and skills in the comprehensive management of patients with epilepsy and its related disorders. During the fellowship you will become proficient in:
- Interpreting EEGs
- Supervising prolonged recordings
- Coordinating special studies
- Surgical monitoring
- Clinical research
- Teaching other medical trainees
The fellowship also offers formal neurophysiology course work, research opportunities and additional training in Mayo Clinic's electromyography (EMG) and EEG laboratories.
To ensure that you acquire adequate knowledge and develop your technical skills, your performance will be monitored carefully during the course of your program training. You will be evaluated formally by your supervising faculty member after each clinical rotation and will meet with the program director to review these evaluations. In addition, you will regularly evaluate the faculty to ensure that your educational needs are being met.
Mayo Clinic's Clinical Neurophysiology, Electroencephalography Fellowship Program is certified by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and graduates are eligible to take the Subspecialty Certification Examination in Clinical Neurophysiology, given by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN).
This fellowship also meets the requirements for board certification in EEG, offered by the American Board of Clinical Neurophysiology (ABCN).
The Clinical Neurophysiology, Electroencephalography Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester was established in 1960 and accredited in 1996. Several fellows have completed training in this program. It is anticipated that three trainees will complete this fellowship annually.
