Available fellowships

Behavioral Neurology

Our goals are to improve fellows’ skills in providing clinical care and performing research. The clinical program is designed to have our fellows enhance their clinical skills by seeing patients with neurocognitive deficits from diseases, such as degenerative dementia, with our attending physicians. Our research program is designed to train clinicians to perform research in preparation for a primarily academic career.

Clinical Neurophysiology

Up to two positions are available, one with EEG/Epilepsy emphasis and the other with EMG/Neuromuscular emphasis. The goals of the EEG fellowship are to develop competence in various aspects of clinical neurophysiology with a special focus on clinical epilepsy, video-EEG monitoring, and epilepsy surgery related procedures. The EMG fellowship will focus on assessment of patients with peripheral nerve and muscle conditions and electrodiagnosis of neuromuscular disorders.

Critical Care EEG Fellowship

As a Critical Care EEG Fellow, you’ll embark on an immersive educational journey, covering both fundamental and advanced aspects of EEG interpretation in critical care settings. Your expertise will expand to include quantitative EEG techniques, real-time brain monitoring, detection of ischemia/vasospasm, examination of controversial patterns, intracranial EEG, and multimodal surveillance. Additionally, you’ll gain exposure to general non-critical care EEG, such as outpatient EEGs, epilepsy video/EEG monitoring, and pediatric critical care EEG.



Up to two positions are available, the program is designed to provide one year of advanced training in epilepsy and EEG with a structured educational curriculum underscored by significant experience of complex adult and pediatric epilepsy. The goals of the fellowship are to impart expertise in clinical epilepsy , anticonvulsant pharmacology, routine and prolonged EEG and video-EEG monitoring, as well as intracranial EEG (SEEG). Fellows also gain exposure to advanced epilepsy neuroimaging and ancillary testing for epilepsy surgery.


Headache Medicine

The University of Florida Headache Medicine Fellowship Program is UCNS accredited and located at UF Health Neuromedicine Hospital in Gainesville, FL. Our Fellowship Program is focused on excellence in clinical care with integration of research activities, formal and informal didactics, and fellow as teacher. As a Fellow, you will have both outpatient and inpatient experience. You will care for patients with primary headache disorders, including migraine and cluster headache, secondary headache disorders and facial pain. In addition to Neuromedicine hospital, you will have an opportunity to see patients in multidisciplinary concussion clinic.

Neurocritical Care

The training program provides opportunity for fellows to manage patients with life threatening neurological and neurosurgical critical illnesses. The fellows will rotate through our brand new neurosciences ICU. The training provides the fellows with the clinical skill set necessary to manage critically ill patients. The fellows will participate in numerous educational activities, as part of the hospital wide multidisciplinary critical care educational pool.

The fellow will receive the training necessary to develop the skills essential to the performance of Neuromuscular Medicine. This training includes many opportunities to observe, evaluate, and manage inpatients and outpatients of all ages with a wide variety of disorders of the neuromuscular system and perform numerous electrodiagnostic evaluations. Training includes direct patient care at both adult and pediatric at our various neuromuscular clinics.


Sports NeuroTrauma

The Robert and Ellen Yates Sports NeuroTrauma Fellow will work closely with the UF Health Trauma, Concussion, and Sports Neurology, (TRACS) Program and affiliated professionals. This fellowship will focus on the diagnosis and treatment of TBI, with emphasis on sports concussions, and exposure to TBI in outpatient settings. Our unique environment offers training in an elite NCAA Division I athletic program (Florida Gators) working on the sidelines during the Gator games, at a top-tier public university with a Level 1 trauma center.


Vascular Neurology

This is a one-year clinical training program designed to provide innovative stroke education in a fast-paced academic setting. Fellows receive intensive, focused training in all aspects of ischemic and hemorrhagic cerebrovascular disease, including acute and longitudinal stroke management, stroke prevention, stroke rehabilitation, neurosonography, neurovascular critical care, multimodality stroke imaging, and interventional neuroradiology. There is also a broad spectrum of additional electives based on individual fellow career interests.



As part of one of the top-funded neurosurgery departments in the United States, our fellowship program is a destination for those interested in an academic career in Neuro-oncology.

The University of Florida Lillian S. Wells Department of Neurosurgery invites individuals with MD, MD/PhD or DO training who are interested in an academic career in Neuro-oncology to apply for a fellowship to engage in clinical rotations while partaking in various research and educational activities.
