of Recommendation requested for applying
This fellowship has been accredited by the ACGME, and fellows who successfully complete it are eligible to take the Added Qualification in Neuromuscular Medicine Exam offered by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. The purpose of this training program is to help fellows develop an understanding of the role of clinical neuromuscular medicine in the comprehensive care of patients in inpatient and outpatient settings. Fellows are provided with extensive clinical/technical experience in the performance of clinical neuromuscular examinations, and trained in the clinical evaluation and management of patients with neuromuscular diseases. Fellows are intended to achieve proficiency in performing and interpreting electromyographic and nerve conduction studies (EMG), and understanding the relevance of EMG in the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders. They are expected to learn the skill of reporting results to other professionals and to patients in understandable language and with sensitivity for the meaning of these results.
The training program provides opportunities to develop knowledge, clinical skills, and professional attitudes that result in the best possible patient care. We expect our fellows to be motivated self-learners who actively participate in their own educational plan under the supervision of our faculty. Fellows will develop growing competence in clinical service, consultation, teaching, and research.
