Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship - Pediatric Focus

Nationwide Children’s Hospital and The Ohio State University offer an ACGME-accredited, one year Clinical Neurophysiology fellowship. Emphasis of the program is the pediatric population. The overarching goal of the fellowship is to prepare neurologists who are comfortable with all aspects of pediatric clinical neurophysiology. In addition, by the end of the program the fellow will have acquired the knowledge needed to successfully achieve certification by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology with special qualifications in Clinical Neurophysiology. These goals are achieved through clinical and research experiences.

About the program
Nationwide Children’s Hospital is the only pediatric hospital for The Ohio State University. Located in Columbus, the center’s catchment area includes central Ohio; although many of our patients reside outside the State. During 2008 the Neurophysiology Service performed almost 3300 routine EEGs, and recorded over 1000 patient-days of video-EEG monitoring. The Hospital’s infrastructure allows us to monitor patients not only in our dedicated epilepsy unit, but also in the pediatric, cardiac, and neonatal intensive care units. Finally, based on current patient volume, during 2010 we expect to complete 25-30 epilepsy surgery cases.

The Pediatric Neurophysiology Program is directed by a team of specialists involved in patient care, education, and research. The one-year curriculum provides fellows cutting-edge experiences in all aspects of clinical neurophysiology including: EEG interpretation, surgical management of epilepsy, diagnosis and management of neuromuscular diseases, neurophysiological intra-operative monitoring, and sleep medicine. While the program is flexible, the general framework includes 8-10 months at Nationwide Children's Hospital and 2-4 months at The Ohio State University. Fellows may also apply for an additional year of training tailored to those who would like to pursue advanced training in clinical neurophysiology and research.

Application process
To be eligible, physicians must have completed a neurology or child neurology residency at an ACGME-accredited program in the United States or Canada. If you meet these requirements, you may apply online for the fellowship.
