Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship Program

The 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 focus on EEG and epilepsy, and one position focuses 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.

Clinical Facilities

Fellows train at IU School of Medicine clinical partner sites in Indianapolis, including

  • IU Health hospitals: IU Health neurology and neurosurgery programs are consistently highly ranked by US News and World Report.
  • Comprehensive Epilepsy Center: 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: A new outpatient center that unites all the specialties that involve nervous system disorders (neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, neuropsychology, and neuroradiology), this center is home to the main outpatient Neurophysiology (EEG, EMG and Evoked Potentials) laboratory at IU Health.
  • Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health: Riley Hospital for Children is the only nationally ranked Pediatric Hospital in the state of Indiana. 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: The VA Medical Center is a designated VA-referral center with a broad spectrum of acute and chronic neurologic patients. Fellows rotate in the Neurophysiology EMG laboratory at this facility.

Fellowship Programs

Fellows in the Department of Neurology EEG track rotate in an inpatient epilepsy monitoring unit as well as an outpatient EEG and Neurotelemetry unit. Participants in this fellowship track attend half a day EMG/NCS each week. They participate in the weekly Evoked 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.

Fellows in the EMG Track 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 in the weekly Evoked 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.
