The Epilepsy Fellowship is a one-year program at Dell Medical School that trains fellows to evaluate and treat children and adults with seizures and seizure disorders and provides a strong foundation in the science, pathology, clinical evaluation, diagnosis and management of these disorders at a level beyond that expected of a general or child neurologist.
Fellows develop clinical skills relevant to all aspects of medical and surgical epilepsy evaluation and management in both the inpatient and outpatient setting, including scalp and intracranial EEG interpretation. While the emphasis is pediatric, at least one month of training is devoted to evaluation and management of epilepsy in adults.
Strengths of this fellowship include top-tier clinical faculty and facilities; an active epilepsy surgery program; a robust, formal didactic program based on the contents of the ABPN Epilepsy boards; a one month required rotation in research; and two months of elective time.
The Epilepsy Fellowship is affiliated with the Department of Neurology.
