Neuromuscular Medicine Fellowship Application Process

The Neuromuscular Medicine Fellowship at Wake Forest School of Medicine is a one-year training program. Two fellows are selected each year.

Each applicant is required to have completed a residency program in either adult or pediatric neurology or physical medicine and rehabilitation accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education in the U.S. or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Applicants must qualify for licensure by the North Carolina Board of Medical Examiners and must be board-eligible for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
