of Recommendation requested for applying
Fellows in the EMG track of Clinical Neurophysiology receive one-year positions in the EMG Laboratory and in the Neuromuscular Medicine division of the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons. The EMG Laboratory provides all electrodiagnostic testing for both the Neurological Institute of New York and New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Fellows in training have in-depth exposure to all aspects of common and uncommon electrodiagnostic methods and procedures in the EMG lab, which is continuously staffed by experienced faculty. As both a tertiary care facility and the sole medical center laboratory, the section provides exposure to a wide variety of unusual cases, as well as substantial grounding in the electrodiagnosis of common disorders. Fellows also rotate through the neuromuscular outpatient centers and muscular dystrophy association clinic at the Neurological Institute, where they learn neuromuscular diagnostic and management skills directly from the distinguished neuromuscular faculty. In addition, an extensive didactic program is also in place, which includes a programmed lecture series, dedicated neuromuscular conferences, and EMG morning report, providing 4 to 6 hours of direct didactic instruction per week.
In addition to eligibility for Certification in the Subspecialty of Clinical Neurophysiology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, fellows successfully completing the program major are eligible for certification by the examination of the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine (ABEM).
