The Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center offers a one-year fellowship program, which is an ACGME Accredited program.
Neuromuscular medicine is a sub-discipline of neurology that includes abnormalities of the motor neuron, nerve roots, plexus, peripheral nerves, neuromuscular junction and muscle.
Specialists in neuromuscular disorders possess specialized knowledge in the science, clinical evaluation or clinical management of disorders of the peripheral nervous system. This encompasses knowledge of the pathophysiology, pathology, diagnosis and treatment of these disorders at a level that is significantly beyond the training and knowledge expected of a general neurologist.
The Department of Neurology is committed to excellence in patient care and clinical teaching services. To that end, the training in the Neuromuscular Medicine Fellowship is a major goal of the faculty. The department takes pride in its role as part of a university teaching hospital and gives teaching a high priority. Faculty believe that medicine is both a science and an art, and recognize that a rational scientific approach to patient treatment and care must be coupled with respect, empathy and a concern for both patient and family.
Adequate scope for learning neuropathology of nerve and muscle, electrophysiology of nerve and muscle are provided. State of the art ALS clinic and MDA clinic offer opportunities to get valuable experience. Chemodenervation, skin biopsy for epidermal nerve density determination are some additional skills that can be learnt. Nerve and muscle ultrasound services are now professionally available at our clinic.
