Fellowship programs are opportunities for medical graduates to enhance their residency experience in Neurology with further training in a neurological sub-specialty. The Department of Neurology would like to thank you for your interest in our fellowship programs
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.
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.
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.
This program is designed for excellent candidates interested in Movement Disorders. Unique to this experience will be training identification and treatment of all movement disorders, training in clinical trials, stereotaxic surgery, and neurophysiology for movement disorders surgery (programming and intra-operative placement). The goal of the fellowship is to turn out truly outstanding movement disorders experts.
The Multiple Sclerosis Fellowship at UF provides one year of advanced training in the diagnosis, treatment and clinical research of patients with MS and related immune-mediated disorders of the central nervous system (CNS). A second year of fellowship may be considered depending on the applicant’s clinical and research interests and long-term career goals.
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.
The 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.
This is a one-year clinical training program designed to provide innovative stroke education in a competitive 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.
