About the Program
The fellowship includes experiences in outpatient neuromuscular clinics and inpatient neuromuscular consultation. There is a major time commitment in the electromyography laboratory where fellows master standard electrodiagnostic techniques. Fellows may also learn advanced electromyographic techniques such as single-fiber electromyography.
In addition, fellows receive training in EMG-guided chemodenervation for the treatment of dystonia and spasticity. Training in neuromuscular ultrasound is also provided. Peripheral nerve and muscle pathology and genetics are reviewed in scheduled conferences.
There are opportunities for clinical research during the fellowship. A research project suitable for publication is strongly encouraged.
