The Clinical Neurophysiology-EEG Fellowship at Wake Forest School of Medicine provides a broad and detailed exposure to a variety of neurophysiologic techniques, including the full spectrum of electroencephalography (EEG) and evoked potentials (EP). This fellowship emphasizes the comprehensive assessment of epilepsy in adults and children.

Under some circumstances, split EEG/EMG track or EMG track fellowship options may be available.

The Clinical Neurophysiology-EEG training leads to eligibility for the American Board of Clinical Neurophysiology-EEG and the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Certification in Clinical Neurophysiology-EEG.

We typically accept one fellow every other year, alternating with the Epilepsy Fellowship. We also offer a two-year program with both options completed sequentially, depending on interest and availability. To learn more, please contact April Edwards, fellowship coordinator, at apedward@wakehealth.edu.

Why Train at Wake Forest?

Fellows gain intensive video-EEG monitoring exposure in a six-bed epilepsy monitoring unit, using state-of-the-art neuroimaging techniques in PET, SPECT and 3T MRI. The use of Magnetoencephalography (MEG) has further strengthened our evaluation of patients with complex epilepsy syndromes.

In addition, fellows are exposed to advanced electrodiagnostic techniques in cortical localization through the use of intracranial grid/strip electrodes, stereo-EEG depth electrode arrays, cortical mapping and other techniques.

Program Goals

The goals of the Clinical Neurophysiology-EEG Fellowship are:

  • To train excellent electroencephalographers with broad skills including video-EEG monitoring in the epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU), critical care EEG and pediatric EEG monitoring
  • To train experts in the care of patients with epilepsy
