Epilepsy/Clinical Neurophysiology

Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship at MGH

Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School

Dr. Andrew Cole
Program Director:
Dr. Douglas Maus

The intent of this two-year fellowship is to provide a strong foundation in clinical epileptology and in the technical, interpretive, and clinical aspects of electroencephalography and evoked potentials, such that the fellow would be able to direct an epilepsy program and an EEG/EP laboratory.

At this time, accreditation is offered by the ACGME for one year of fellowship, and fellows are expected to gain exposure to a variety of neurophysiological disciplines. To meet accreditation requirements, 20% of your time during the first year must be spent in a non-major discipline. Epilepsy/Clinical Neurophysiology fellows at Mass General currently spend that time in the Sleep lab. The 20% commitment may be satisfied by a combination of didactic and clinical experience. Intraoperative Monitoring experience is also available under the direction of Dr. Mirela Simon, but is not currently accepted by the ACGME as satisfaction of the 20% requirement.

The service includes an inpatient consultation service, an active outpatient epilepsy clinic, an epilepsy monitoring unit, an epilepsy surgery program co-directed by Dr. Emad Eskandar, a Pediatric Epilepsy Program directed by Dr. Elizabeth Thiele, and an active epilepsy research program including both clinical and basic science research approaches to the problem of chronic epilepsy. In addition to offering advice on the medical management of seizure disorders and evaluation for the surgical management of such problems, the Epilepsy Service also provides the opportunity for patients to enroll in investigational treatment protocols.
