Our fellowship program is an ACGME accredited, one year program. We provide ample and diverse training opportunity in neuromuscular medicine and electrodiagnostic study. Our fellowship program consists of seven neuromuscular teaching faculty members (six for adult and one for pediatric), and three teaching facilities (University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham VA Medical Center, and Children’s Hospital of Alabama). Fellows participate in patient care at the Neuromuscular Clinic, adult and pediatric Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Clinic, and ALS Clinics. In addition to routine electrodiagnostic studies, fellows have opportunity to learn advanced electrodiagnostic procedures including repetitive nerve study, single fiber EMG, and evoked potentials. One of the strengths of our program is that we have our own neuromuscular biopsy suite and pathology lab. In addition to weekly pathology teaching sessions, fellows have an opportunity in reading muscle, nerve, and skin pathology with an attending. The other learning opportunity includes autonomic function tests. Our weekly neuromuscular didactic course is well designed, starting from review of neuromuscular anatomy and principles of electrodiagnostic tests, to basic then advanced neuromuscular disorders and relevant electrodiagnostic tests. Fellows are expected to teach neurology residents rotating through our service. After completing the training, fellows will acquire knowledge and skills required for practicing neuromuscular medicine and electrodiagnostic study independently.
