The Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship in Electromyography and Neuromuscular Disorders is ACGME approved and designed to fulfill requirements for the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine, the Certification in Neuromuscular Medicine, and the Added Qualifications in Clinical Neurophysiology. Training is based at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center and at the Nashville VAMC. Fellows will spend their time in the EMG lab and neuromuscular clinics focusing on muscular dystrophy, inherited neuropathy, acquired neuropathy, neuromuscular junction disorders, ALS, and other motor neuron diseases. Fellows will be trained to be proficient and independent at EMG, nerve conduction studies, repetitive nerve stimulation and single fiber EMG. Additional training is available in autonomic testing if desired. Fellows will have exposure to pediatric EMG and pediatric neuromuscular patients. Fellows have weekly conferences in pathology to review muscle biopsies and weekly neurophysiology lectures. Opportunities for basic and clinical research exist and are encouraged. Vanderbilt is a tertiary medical center and receives referrals from throughout Tennessee as well as Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia, and other adjacent states.
Applicants must be board eligible or certified in Neurology and qualified for medical licensure in the state of Tennessee.
Along with the completed application form, please send a current CV and three letters of reference. You may fax the letters to (615) 936-2675 to expedite review of your application, but the original letters must still be sent. We request that your application be received by May 1 in the year prior to the anticipated fellowship start date. Thus, for fellows beginning in 2012, applications are requested by May 1, 2011.
