About the Program

Our fellowship within the Movement Disorders Division provides an option for one to two years of training. The one-year option provides a strong education in diagnosis and treatment of movement disorders for either future academic or community-based practice careers. The two-year option allows for additional training and development of research interests, mentored by our outstanding team of clinician-scientists.


There are no national certifying bodies for Movement Disorders Fellowships, but the University of Iowa Movement Disorders Fellowship is listed as one of 31 such fellowships in the American Academy of Neurology directory.

The Movement Disorders fellowship training is directly associated with our ACGME (#180-18-21-039) accredited Neurology Residency program at University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics.
