  • Direct instruction from seasoned electrodiagnosticians, including technologists and physicians in an AANEM Accredited Laboratory with Exemplary Status
  • Elective time for various neuromuscular-adjacent learning opportunities or research pursuits
  • Opportunities for becoming proficient in the reading of autonomic reflex studies
  • Monthly neuropathology conference with in-person slide review with neuromuscular and neuropathology attendings and related trainees


Fellows will be exposed to the following:

  • Outpatient exposure to broad nerve and muscle pathology, from a variety of etiologies including toxic/metabolic, autoimmune, genetic, degenerative, and nutritional
  • Inpatient neuromuscular consults and electrodiagnostic testing
  • Robust electrodiagnostic training, with specialized training in jitter analysis (aka single fiber EMG), repetitive nerve stimulation, prolonged exercise testing for periodic paralysis, sympathetic skin response, and quantitative EMG
  • A multidisciplinary clinic dedicated to ALS, which is a certified Center of Excellence by the ALS Association
  • A multidisciplinary clinic dedicated to muscular dystrophy, which is partnered with the Muscular Dystrophy Association
  • Rural outreach neuromuscular care
