The Clinical Neurophysiology fellowship at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Boston Children’s Hospital has been one of the premier training programs since its inception. This one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship provides a broad exposure and strong foundation for adult and pediatric neurologists. Fellows participate in one of four “major” subspecialty tracks:
  • Adult EEG/Epilepsy
  • Autonomic Disorders
  • EMG/NCS/Neuromuscular Medicine
  • Pediatric EEG/Epilepsy
There will be exposure to a variety of other subspecialties, and in fact 20% of the fellowship year is spent in a “minor” subspecialty area. Elective rotations in related fields, such as sleep and intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring, are also available and may be arranged at other Harvard-affiliated teaching hospitals to meet individual learning goals. Successful completion of the ACGME-accredited year will qualify graduates to take the Clinical Neurophysiology board certification exam from the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. For those applicants interested in two years of fellowship training, the Clinical Neurophysiology fellowship year may be combined with the Epilepsy fellowship year (see below).
