Fellows can expect to be exposed to a variety of disorders and treatments through neuromuscular clinical rotations, research, and conferences.

Training comprises instruction in and exposure to:

  • NM Disorders
  • Nerve Conductive Study, Electromyogram and Neuromuscular Ultrasound
  • Neuropathology
  • Specific Procedures including Chemodenervation
  • UHC Needle Muscle Biopsy
  • Intraepidermal Nerve Fibers Skin Biopsy
  • Autonomic Testing
  • Single-fiber EMG

Clinical Rotations

In addition to general Neuromuscular clinics, fellows attend multi-disciplinary ALS and MDA clinics and consult on NM inpatients, eventually seeing them in follow-up in their own continuity clinic. Elective time can also be used for research projects that are overseen by NM faculty members.

Electives include:

  • Chemodenervation Sessions
  • Movement Disorder Clinic
  • Orthopedics
  • Pain Management
  • Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

Research Opportunities

Fellows can pursue their subspecialty interests through various research opportunities and clinical trials.

Conferences and Didactics

Fellows attend:

  • EMG Case Conference
  • Neuromuscular Pathology Conferences
  • Neuromuscular Medicine Lecture Series
  • Neuromuscular Journal Club
  • Neuromuscular Quality/Research Conferences
  • Epilepsy/Clinical Neurophysiology Lecture Series
  • Neurology Grand Rounds
