This is a one-year fellowship which provides training in both pediatric and adult neuromuscular diseases. One position is an Adult NM track and the other position is a Pediatric NM track. Mission Statement: The mission of the neuromuscular medicine fellowship-training program is to train mature, energetic physicians in the science and art of neuromuscular medicine and to produce physicians committed to the highest level of patient care. Fellows will acquire a thorough understanding of neuromuscular conditions and will learn to provide excellent care, including the appropriate work up and treatment of patients with neuromuscular conditions. Graduates of the program will be expected to understand the principles of systems-based practice, have developed superior interpersonal and communications skills, and to behave in a highly professional manner. Our mission aligns with that of the university with the goal of creating and discovering knowledge to improve the well-being of our state, regional, national and global communities and educate students through a comprehensive array of distinguished academic programs. Our program serves as a one of the distinguished academic programs that also fulfill our medical center mission to improve people’s lives through innovation in research, education and patient care. Program Aims: The goals of the fellowship are to develop competence in various aspects of neuromuscular medicine, achieved through a mixture of high quality clinical exposure to the full spectrum of neuromuscular conditions in a wide variety of patient populations balanced with a broad range of didactic sessions provided by the faculty both from the Department of Neurology and also from related disciplines. In addition, the fellows learn from interactions with other fellows, residents and medical students and are expected to take an active role in teaching. Evaluations of the fellows will be based on the six competencies: patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, and systems-based practice. The fellows will be asked to provide feedback on the quality of the program. Fellows who successfully complete this program are eligible to sit for the sub-specialty board examination in Neuromuscular Medicine (American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
