We have an unexpected opening for an Epilepsy Fellow (ACGME Clinical Neurophysiology Fellow) starting July 1, 2017 (through June 30, 2018).
This fellowship is based at the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) and the Baltimore VA Medical Center. Currently, the fellowship is an ACGME-approved Clinical Neurophysiology fellowship but is in process to become an ACGME Epilepsy Fellowship. We reserve the right to make adjustments to training including subsequent board eligibility based on the timeline of this process.
Training includes routine EEG and continuous EEG in adult and pediatric patients, training in the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (4 Adult beds at UMMC and 1 Adult bed at the VA) as well as outpatient care in multiple clinic settings. Training also includes participation in our VA Epilepsy Center of Excellence at the Baltimore VA. The program is a Level IV Epilepsy Center accredited through NAEC with opportunities for involvement in our surgical program, critical care EEG, and many other activities. We currently have 8 faculty in the Division including the Chair of the Neurology Department.
Research opportunities are included.
Training and call is shared with two fellows in our ACGME Clinical Neurophysiology Program - EEG Track. Pay and benefits are commensurate with those at the University setting in the ACGME program at equivalent PGY-levels.

About University of Maryland Medical Center and Baltimore VA Medical Center
The Epilepsy/Sleep Programs at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and Hospital are closely inter-related and glean a good deal of financial support from the VA Maryland Healthcare System (VAMHCS), particularly, for physician support. The Maryland Epilepsy Center is an active, Level IV (NAEC accredited) epilepsy program with an active surgical program, busy critical care EEG service and... a variety of clinical activities. We have 8 faculty including the Department Chair with extensive administrative and nursing support.
The Epilepsy Center of Excellence (ECoE) at the VA Maryland Healthcare System is one of 16 such centers of excellence in the country and currently shares in $8,000,000 annually in support for our activities and staff. The Baltimore VA is the coordinating center for the Northeast ECoE (which includes the Richmond VA and Virginia Commonwealth School of Medicine; and the West Haven VA and Yale School of Medicine). The Sleep Program at the Baltimore VA is a large program that has grown tremendously and is run by Neurology with some limited input from Medicine and Pulmonary at the VA. Epilepsy/Sleep faculty at our VA are supported by a combination of funds from the ECOE and the VA Neurology Department. Many Epilepsy/Sleep faculty have responsibilities to the General Neurology Service at the VAMHCS.
