Educational Objectives

The ICU/EEG Fellowship at the University of Florida aims to enrich fellows’ clinical, academic, and practical skills in critical care EEG monitoring. The educational experience includes participation in Weekly Epilepsy Surgery Conferences, Neurology Grand Rounds, Academic Fridays, ICU EEG Conferences, and resident-focused EEG conferences. Additionally, a six-week bootcamp offers intensive training in neurophysiology and epilepsy. Intermittent journal clubs and targeted EEG talks further foster an environment of continuous learning and collaboration. 

Overview of the key educational components

  • Weekly Epilepsy Surgery Conferences – Fellows will actively participate in these conferences, gaining insights into the latest surgical techniques, patient evaluations, and treatment plans for epilepsy. This will foster a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. 
  • Neurology Grand Rounds – Through attendance at these sessions, fellows will engage with a broad spectrum of neurology topics, presented by leading experts in the field. This encourages continuous learning and exposure to cutting-edge developments. 
  • Academic Fridays Conference – Fellows will join these stimulating forums to discuss a wide array of academic subjects related to neurophysiology and critical care. Interaction with peers and faculty will promote critical thinking and academic discourse. 
  • ICU EEG Conferences – Tailored to the specific interests of the ICU/EEG fellowship, these conferences will provide an in-depth look at ICU EEG practices, recent advances, case studies, and challenges, fostering a collaborative learning environment. 
  • Weekly EEG Conferences for Residents – Fellows will not only attend but also have opportunities to lead discussions in these regular conferences, providing a platform to hone teaching skills and foster collaboration with residents. 
  • Clinical Neurophysiology/Epilepsy Fellowship 6-Week Bootcamp –  This intensive training period is designed to immerse fellows in the core concepts of neurophysiology and epilepsy, providing a strong foundation for specialized ICU/EEG practice. 
  • Intermittent Epilepsy/EEG Journal Clubs – Engagement with these journal clubs will enable fellows to stay abreast of current research and methodologies in epilepsy and EEG. This promotes a culture of evidence-based practice and scholarly inquiry. 
  • EEG Talks for Residents – Fellows will participate in and potentially lead educational sessions aimed at residents. These talks will focus on specific aspects of EEG, enhancing both the fellows’ and residents’ understanding and practical skills.
