Clinical Neurophysiology Curriculum

 

The Clinical Neurophysiology Curriculum is designed to optimize exposure for Trainees in the two principal areas of Clinical Neurophysiology, namely Electroencephalography (EEG) and Electromyography (EMG). Additional exposures to such diverse areas as Sleep, Autonomic Testing, Somatosensory Evoke Potentials (SEP), Intraoperative Monitoring, and Chemodenervation are also provided. There is no set sequence of rotations, as this depends on the specific interests of the Trainee, in combination with the programmatic needs of the Clinical Neurophysiology Sections. In addition, one of the three positions that are offered is focused on Pediatric Clinical Neurophysiology. The Pediatric Clinical Neurophysiology Trainee spends some time in the adult Clinical Neurophysiology Laboratories, and in turn the adult Clinical Neurophysiology Trainees spend a similar, shorter period of time in the Pediatric Clinical Neurophysiology Laboratories.

Four basic and somewhat typical curriculum modules are shown below; however it is emphasized that these may vary depending on programmatic needs and the individual trainee’s needs:

    1.  Clinical Neurophysiology with emphasis on EEG:

               Adult EEG:             8 months
               Pediatric EEG:        1 month
               Sleep:                   1 month
               Adult EMG:             2 months

    2.  Clinical Neurophysiology with emphasis on EMG:

               Adult EMG:             8 months
               Adult EEG:             2 months
               Pediatric EEG:        1 month
               Sleep:                   1 month

    3.  Clinical Neurophysiology without equal emphasis on EMG and EEG:

               Adult EEG:             2-5 months
               Pediatric EEG:        1-5 month
               Sleep:                   1 month
               Adult EMG:             5 months

    4.  Pediatric Clinical Neurophysiology:

               Adult EEG:             1 month
               Pediatric EEG:        8 months
               Sleep:                   1 month
               Adult EMG:             2 months
