Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship

Providing Foundational, Individualized Training in Clinical Neurophysiology

The Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin is a yearlong training opportunity for physicians seeking a solid foundation in the subspecialty of clinical neurophysiology. The program’s 13 block curriculum is built with a strong focus on electromyography/neuromuscular medicine and electroencephalography/epilepsy. Additional experiences include sleep medicine, pediatric epilepsy, nerve/muscle biopsy and autonomic testing. The program offers two Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-approved positions each year and applications are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service in conjunction with the National Resident Matching Program.

The partnership between Dell Med and Ascension Seton provides trainees with a large and diverse patient base, opportunity for collaboration with over 30 other fellowships, and numerous research and academic growth opportunities. The curriculum is individualized towards each fellow’s clinical interests while also containing a comprehensive didactic schedule to prepare for ABPN boards. With a focused mission to effectively serve the rapidly growing population of Central Texas, the program’s foundational training ensures that fellows advance their skills to become not only excellent clinicians but also leaders in transforming health care.  

The Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship is affiliated with Dell Med’s Department of Neurology.
