The clinical neuromuscular fellowship program at the University of Mississippi Medical Center provides ACGME-approved fellowship training in clinical diagnosis and management of neuromuscular disorders as well as electrodiagnostic testing, autonomic testing, and muscle and nerve biopsies. We have openings for one fellow per academic year. Candidates must have completed a neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, or pediatric neurology residency prior to their start date.
Fellows work in a one-on-one setting with neuromuscular specialists in neuromuscular clinics, Muscular Dystrophy association clinic, and a multidisciplinary ALS clinic. He or she will also have at least three half days a week in the electrodiagnostic laboratory and one half day a week in muscle biopsies. Elective opportunities are available in autonomic testing, rheumatology and neuromuscular pathology. Our facility averages 1,500 EMGs/year, 3-4 autonomic tests/week, and 4-6 muscle biopsies per week. Our fellows engage in research and quality improvement opportunities as well.
We have three board-certified neuromuscular attendings, two with neurology backgrounds and one with Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation training. Our program offers training for pediatric and adult patients. The faculty to fellow ratio is 1:1 allowing interactive and intensive teaching opportunities.
