The one-year Clinical Neurophysiology Electroencephalography Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, prepares you for an academic career by providing you with experience in teaching, research, and clinical activities.
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 clinical practice.
The Clinical Neurophysiology Electroencephalography Fellowship is an integrated program that encompasses electroencephalography (EEG) and epilepsy. This fellowship experience is one year long, though many fellows elect to take an additional year of training in epilepsy in the Epilepsy Fellowship.
The fellowship includes both didactic and clinical experiences. Experience in clinical epilepsy is integrated with the fellowship through rotations in the adult and pediatric epilepsy monitoring units and adult and pediatric epilepsy clinics.
During the program, you become proficient in:
- Interpreting EEGs and prolonged recordings
- Coordinating special studies
- Surgical monitoring and cortical stimulation mapping
- Clinical research
- Teaching other medical trainees
The fellowship also offers formal neurophysiology coursework, research opportunities, and additional training in Mayo Clinic's electromyography (EMG) and EEG laboratories.
