Dear Fellow Applicant:
Thank you for your inquiry about the MUSC Fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology.
The
program offers one year of study, incorporating electroencephalography and epilepsy,
electromyography and neuromuscular diseases, evoked potentials and intraoperative
monitoring.
At the conclusion of one year of training, fellows are qualified to sit for examination by the
American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology for
Neurophysiology.
Special Qualification in Clinical
With additional focus on EMG or on EEG, fellows may also meet
requirements to sit for examination by the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine or the
American Board of Clinical Neurophysiology.
Faculty and staff in the program includes neuromuscular specialists, pediatric epileptologists
and adult epileptologists, in addition to a neuropsychologist, and neurosurgeons who specialize
in functional neurosurgery, adult and pediatric epilepsy coordinators, and nursing staff. Current
faculty/staff include the following:
Jonathan Edwards, Director, Comprehensive Epilepsy
Leonardo Bonilha, M.D., Ph.D., Adult Epileptologist
Ramin Eskandari, M.D. (Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery)
Jonathan Halford, M.D., Adult Epileptologist
Samir Karia, MBBS, Pediatric Epilepsy
Jerome Kurent, M.D., MPH, Neuromuscular
Ekrem Kutluay, M.D., Adult Epileptologist
Paul B. Pritchard, III, M.D., Adult Epileptologist
Katherine Ruzhansky, M.D., Neuromuscular
Alex Vandergrift, M.D. Neurosurgery (Adult Epilepsy Surgery)
Braxton Wannamaker, M.D., Adult Epileptologist
David Walsh, M.D. Pediatric Epilepsy
Mrs. Jerri O’Banner, Program Coordinator, Fellowship Programs
Clinical activities of the combined programs include adult and pediatric epilepsy clinics, vagus
nerve stimulator (VNS) clinics, video-EEG (VEEG) monitoring (inpatient and outpatient), and
outreach clinics. We offer all treatment modalities, including pharmacological treatment, vagus
nerve stimulators, and surgical treatment.
We are fortunate to have superb interventional
neuroradiology and an outstanding program and research in functional MRI. The exposure to
peripheral neurophysiology involves the performance and interpretation of electrodiagnostic
studies performed in the MUSC EMG laboratory including specialized testing of neuromuscular
junction physiology. Additional clinical activities include expose to patients in the neuromuscular
specialty clinics (Myasthenia Gravis Clinic, MDA Clinic, MUSC ALS Clinic).
The current fellowship is a one-year term, but it is possible to extend that time to two years
through participation in research projects. Applicants are asked to designate a preference for
either the EEG or EMG track.
Positions for the Fellowship are available beginning July 1, 2015. Interested applicants are
requested to complete the enclosed application and return it to us along with two letters of
recommendations, one of which should be from your Neurology program director, as well as an
official transcript. International medical graduates should also submit a copy of their USMLE
scores. Please submit all papers without paper clips or staples.
Candidates whose credentials and interests qualify them for further consideration will be invited
to interview with our faculty and staff. Typically such visits are scheduled between February
and April. If you have further questions after you have submitted your application, please feel
free to contact Jerri O’Banner via E-mail ([email protected]).
