 Welcome

Thank you for your interest in the Movement Disorders Fellowship program at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Our fellowship provides clinical training across the spectrum of movement disorders, including advanced therapies such as deep brain stimulation and botulinum toxin injections. Successful applicants to this program must have completed a Neurology residency in an ACGME-accredited program and should be board eligible or board certified in Neurology.

The overarching goal of the program is to train exceptional clinicians, qualified to provide expert care for individuals living with movement disorders. As such, the core fellowship training will consist of a comprehensive clinical and educational program. Clinical exposure will include general movement disorders clinics, botulinum toxin clinics, deep brain stimulation programming, and management of levodopa-carbidopa intestinal gel infusions. The fellow will also participate in the multidisciplinary deep brain stimulation case conference and regular video rounds/case conferences with the movement disorders faculty. However, the program is also designed to be flexible to meet the individual goals of the trainee.

For example, fellows may choose to spend additional time dedicated to deep brain stimulation intraoperative management, clinical trials, or independent research projects. Elective experiences are also available in other subspecialties which overlap with movement disorders, including the sleep disorders, cognitive disorders, and normal pressure hydrocephalus clinics. Depending on the fellow’s needs, either 1-year or 2-year tracks will be available.

Training will occur primarily at the Froedtert Hospital and Specialty Clinics, and the Moorland Reserve Health Center.

Applications will be accepted through the San Francisco Match.
