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.
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.
