About the Program

Our Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship program at the University of Iowa offers rotations in EEG, EMG, Sleep, and EMU.

During an EEG rotation, fellows are exposed to adult and pediatric EEG in the inpatient and outpatient settings, including continuous bedside ICU monitoring and quantitaive EEG. This rotation also includes significant exposure to intraoperative monitoring, as well as evoked potential and Wada studies.

During the EMU rotation, fellows participate in video EEG monitoring including presurgical evaluations and intracranial EEG monitoring at a Level 4 Epilepsy Center, which provides the highest level of epilepsy care available in the US. During the EMG rotation, the fellows gain expertise in nerve conduction studies and EMG, including repetitive nerve stimulation and single fiber EMG. In addition, fellows have the opportunity to participate in specialized clinics including ALS Clinic, Autonomic Disorders Clinic, Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Clinic, and Myotonic Dystrophy Clinic.

During the sleep rotation, fellows participate in polysomnography and multiple sleep latency testing and gain expertise in treating sleep disorders. Weekly didactic courses include Epilepsy Surgery Conference, Neuromuscular Lecture Series, Epilepsy Lecture Series, Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship Case Conference, and Sleep Fellowship Case Conference. This program offers a broad exposure to clinical neurophysiology, but rotations can be tailored to the goals of the fellow.
