Fellowship in Neuromuscular Medicine

The Department of Neurology offers a one-year (July 1 to June 30th) ACGME-approved Fellowship in Neuromuscular Medicine. This fellowship will qualify the fellow to take the ABPN examination for Neuromuscular Medicine. The fellowship provides a major emphasis on clinical neuromuscular diseases, NCS/EMG, and neuromuscular pathology. It also offers opportunities to participate in clinical research.

The Mount Sinai Neuromuscular Center has 10 neuromuscular specialists. These experts treat a variety of neuromuscular diseases, including motor neuron diseases, radiculopathies, plexopathies, neuropathies, myopathies, myasthenia gravis, and neuromuscular complications associated with AIDS. The Center also provides comprehensive diagnostic testing, including NCS/EMG, muscle and nerve biopsies with interpretation, skin biopsies with intraepidermal nerve fiber density evaluation, autonomic testing, and peripheral nerve ultrasound. The fellow will work with the neuromuscular specialists to learn all aspects of neuromuscular medicine, and will also participate in inpatient neuromuscular consultations.

There are weekly teaching conferences and monthly nerve/muscle biopsy conferences. There are a number of research projects in the Center, some of which are funded by the National Institutes of Health. The fellow will be strongly encouraged to participate in clinical research projects.

Applicants to the fellowship program must complete a three-year Neurology residency at an approved training program and are required to be licensed to practice medicine in New York State prior to beginning the fellowship.
