The focus is to obtain proficiency in all aspects of clinical neurophysiology, including epileptology, electromyography, intraoperative monitoring and evoked potentials. The one-year program provides clinical exposure to a wide variety of neuromuscular diseases through the outpatient clinics at Cedars-Sinai and the University of California, Los Angeles. Fellows also are exposed to the medical and surgical evaluation of seizure disorders, including drug trials, pre-surgical work-up and sophisticated functional neuroimaging for localization of the epileptogenic region.
The fellow participates in research activities and is required to have at least one research project.
The fellow is integrated into the teaching activities provided for the Cedars-Sinai Department of Neurology and Department of Medicine residents, as well as for UCLA neurology residents and medical students rotating in neurology and neurophysiology.
