Explore This Fellowship


The Massachusetts General Hospital Epilepsy Service and the Epilepsy Research Laboratory offer a post-doctoral fellowship in Epilepsy Neurobiology. The Fellowship offers advanced training in clinical epileptology and neurobiology.

Extensive laboratory and clinical facilities are available at Mass General, and a wide range of potential collaborators is easily accessible within the Harvard and Boston scientific communities.

The Epilepsy and Neurobiology fellowship is a track that might follow our one-year accredited fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology. Alternatively, fellows may choose the Pediatric Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology track.

Clinical Experience

Twenty-five percent of the fellows’ time will be devoted to advanced clinical training in epileptology and clinical neurophysiology in the setting of the Mass General Epilepsy Service. This service evaluates and treats complex and refractory epilepsy patients using the latest clinical and technological approaches.

Research Experience

The fellow is expected to devote seventy-five percent of his/her time to basic research in epilepsy and disorders of neuronal excitability. Laboratory experience will occur in the Epilepsy Research Laboratory within the Neurology Research Group at Mass General.
