Fellows will divide their time between the Clinical Neuromuscular Section and the Clinical Neurophysiology Laboratory. The fellowship emphasizes clinical electrodiagnostic medicine and provides training that is designed to meet the requirements for ABEM examination and the ABPN Neuromuscular Medicine examination. Fellows will learn the fundamentals of conventional nerve conduction studies and needle EMG. They will have the opportunity to learn techniques of quantitative EMG once they have mastered the former. Expertise in the clinical evaluation of patients with a variety of neuromuscular disorders is acquired by participation in the Neuromuscular Disorders Clinics, which include the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Peripheral Neuropathy, Autonomic Disorders, and Myasthenia Gravis Clinics. Experience in the interpretation of muscle and nerve biopsies is available. Participation in ongoing research programs in both clinical neuromuscular disorders and electrodiagnostic medicine is encouraged.
