Epilepsy Fellowship

The Comprehensive Epilepsy Program at Wayne State University/Detroit Medical Center accepts two fellows per year for training in Epilepsy. A separate Clinical Neurophysiology EEG Track (CNP) is also available. Although a two-year fellowship spent in Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology is recommended, one-year fellowships are also offered.  Both fellowship programs are accredited by ACGME.

The goals of the Epilepsy Fellowship are to provide instruction to fellows to become proficient in the evaluation and treatment of patients with seizures and seizure disorders of various etiologies and complexities. Exposure to comprehensive epilepsy care is provided and includes:

Proficiency in interpretations of EEGs in the ambulatory, critical care and inpatient settings including the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit.

Outpatient specialized epilepsy clinics.

Management of intractable epilepsy including surgical evaluation in the form of interpretation of advanced neuroimaging techniques, Wada procedures, and intracranial EEG.

Neurostimulation including RNS and VNS insertion and programming.

Pediatric epilepsy; which is completed at our partner hospital Children's Hospital of Michigan.

Clinical research opportunities and protected research elective time if desired.
