Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship
Welcome from the Program Director, Chad Carlson, MD
As Program Director for the Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship at the Medical College of Wisconsin, I want to thank you for your interest in our program. Our fellowship is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Successful applicants to this program must have completed a Neurology Residency or Child Neurology Residency (formerly a Child Neurology Fellowship) in an ACGME-accredited program and should be board eligible or board certified in Neurology or Child Neurology.
Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship training allows one to explore several different and unique forms of neurodiagnostic testing in detail. Although many fellows choose to focus primarily in electromyography and nerve conduction studies or in electroencephalography, others choose to have a balanced training experience to prepare for a diverse clinical practice upon graduation.
My goal as a Program Director, and our goal as a Fellowship Program, is to provide a sturdy foundation in Clinical Neurophysiology that will prepare our graduates for a diverse array of careers.
Successful candidates may be interested in academic or non-academic careers and may have a number of different interests clinically. To be fully compliant with the ACGME requirements, all fellows will do at least one rotation in Adult EMG/NCV, one rotation in Adult EEG/EMU (Epilepsy Monitoring Unit), and one rotation in Pediatric EEG/EMU. The remaining rotations will be determined by the fellow’s primary clinical focus and specific training needs.
