Explore This Fellowship
Fellows in the Neuromuscular Medicine program receive training in the diagnosis and management of a variety of neuromuscular disorders in adults and children. Intensive training in electrodiagnosis (EMG) and nerve/muscle biopsy are offered. The Neuromuscular Medicine fellowship is a joint program of Massachusetts General and Brigham and Women’s (BWH) Hospitals. The BWH rotation includes training at Children’s Hospital Boston. Upon completion of this fellowship, trainees are eligible to sit for the Neuromuscular Medicine subspecialty boards under the auspices of the ABPN, and the EMG boards (ABEM).
Applicants must have completed an ACGME-accredited neurology residency training program.
Fellows rotate in three-month blocks between Mass General and BWH/CH. The curriculum includes several regular teaching conferences, including a year-long faculty run lecture series that provides weekly lectures on EMG and neuromuscular medicine, a weekly nerve/muscle biopsy conference and a weekly EMG waveform conference.
Fellows rotate through the neuromuscular clinics and EMG laboratories in several participating institutions, including Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital.
Fellows are expected to complete at least one research project during the fellowship year, under the mentorship of a faculty member in the division of Neuromuscular Medicine.
