Priority Deadline: June 30
Interviews: August - September

Fellows who are interested are strongly encouraged to participate in research and publications. For those who desire more in-depth training a second year with further specialization is offered. Over half of our fellows have gone on to a second year of fellowship training.

Fellows interested in EMG and neuromuscular disorders are encouraged to devote a year of training to this discipline. However, fellows seeking an introduction to fellowship-level EMG typically spend the last 3 months of the year gaining part time experience. Fellows completing the Epilepsy and Sleep Disorders track who then complete the ABPN Neurology Boards are eligible to take the ABPN Added Qualification in Clinical Neurophysiology, the American Board of Clinical Neurophysiology, and the American Board of Sleep Medicine examinations.

The Neuromuscular/EMG fellowship offers one year ACGME approved clinical neurophysiology fellowship training in electromyography and neuromuscular disorders. The program is structured to provide Fellows with special expertise leading to certification by the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine and the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology examination for special qualification in clinical neurophysiology. Besides being an excellent training in the field of neuromuscular disease the fellowship provides the added experience of living in the exotic city of New Orleans.

For further information or to apply for the Epilepsy and Sleep Disorders or the Neuromuscular Disorders Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship track please contact the interim program coordinator, Dr. Nicole Villemarette-Pittman at, or 504 568-4091. Applications require a CV, Statement of Intent and 3 letters of recommendation, one of which must be from your Neurology Program Director.
