Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship Program
Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Neurology offers a one year ACGME-accredited clinical neurophysiology fellowship. Three positions are offered each year. Two positions have a focus on EEG and epilepsy and one position has a focus on EMG and neuromuscular disorders.
All Department of Neurology fellows learn the entire range of neurophysiology techniques including EEG, EMG, Evoked Responses, Intraoperative Neurophysiology Monitoring and Sleep Studies. Fellows acquire the skills necessary to function independently as a clinical neurophysiologist in either an academic setting or private practice.
This program has trained more than 90 specialists in clinical neurophysiology since 1972, when the program was founded by Omkar Markand, MD.
- IU Health neurology and neurosurgery programs are consistently highly ranked by US News and World Report.
- The Comprehensive Epilepsy Center is the only level-four epilepsy center in Indiana and is an important site for several multicenter national and international clinical trials, including studies of deep brain stimulation.
- IU Health Neuroscience Center it is a new outpatient center that unites all the specialties that involve nervous system disorders – Neurology, Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Neuropsychology, and Neuroradiology. It is also home of the main outpatient Neurophysiology (EEG, EMG and Evoked Potentials) laboratory at IU Health.
- Riley Hospital for Children is the only nationally ranked Pediatric Hospital in the state of Indiana. The fellows are exposed to a large variety and volume of neurophysiology tests performed across all pediatric age groups, from prematurely born neonates to teenagers.
- Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center is a designated VA referral center with a broad spectrum of acute and chronic neurologic patients. The fellows rotate in the Neurophysiology EMG laboratory at this facility.
EEG Track (two positions)
Fellows in the Department of Neurology EEG track have the following rotations:
- Inpatient Epilepsy Monitoring Unit
- Outpatient EEG and Neurotelemetry
EEG track fellows attend half a day EMG/NCS each week. They participate in the weekly Evoked potential reading sessions of intraoperative neurophysiology studies and attend the weekly epilepsy clinic at IU Health Neuroscience Center. They also participate in the OR functional brain mapping and neurophysiology monitoring (Electrocorticography). Fellows in this program may also attend reading sessions of adult and pediatric sleep studies.
EMG Track (one position)
EMG Track fellows rotate in the EMG labs at IU Health Neuroscience Center and at Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center. They attend weekly EEG and Neurotelemetry reading sessions and participate also in the weekly Evoked potential reading sessions of intraoperative neurophysiology studies. They may also attend reading sessions of adult and pediatric sleep studies. The EMG track fellow attends MDA clinic on a weekly basis.
