Epilepsy

Patricia Dugan, MD, Director

The NYU Langone Health Neurology Department offers an ACGME-accredited one year fellowship in Epilepsy, with an emphasis on EEG interpretation and the clinical evaluation and management of epilepsy. Fellows gain wide-ranging experience with the interpretation of routine, ambulatory, long-term video EEG on both adult and pediatric services, and in various clinical settings. Fellows also participate in the presurgical and surgical evaluation of patients and have extensive exposure to intraoperative electrocorticography, cortical mapping procedures, intracarotid amobarbital (Wada) tests, in addition to intracranial EEG reading. The program involves regular multidisciplinary collaboration with our center’s neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, neuroradiologists, and neuroscientists. Fellows are encouraged to take advantage of the abundant and diverse research opportunities at the NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center.

Fellows who have successfully completed this year of training are eligible for subspecialty certification in Epilepsy through the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Graduates may also opt to pursue a second year (non-ACGME-accredited) of fellowship training at NYU.

We encourage interested applicants to read through our website and familiarize yourself with the NYU Langone Comprehensive Epilepsy Center and Division of Clinical Neurophysiology. A more detailed description of the training program tracks and rotations, along with the fellowship Faculty, is provided through these links (Epilepsy Curriculum, Epilepsy Research Fellowship) and Program Director and Faculty.
