Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, NY
Pediatric Epilepsy Fellowship Program

Our ACGME accredited Pediatric Epilepsy Fellowship Program is seeking candidates for July, 2020. During the year of training, the fellowship program provides a broad and in-depth clinical experience in the medical and surgical management of seizure disorders and in the technical, interpretive, and clinical aspects of EEG. Upon completion of the program fellows will function independently as epileptologists and become eligible for the ABPN subspecialty certification in epilepsy. The epilepsy program is based out of three hospitals, all NAEC 4 level programs: Cohen Childrens Medical Center, North Shore University Hospital, with electives available at Lenox Hill Hospital in NYC. The combined program includes: 20 epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU) beds, long term monitoring and consultative services, active outpatient adult and pediatric epilepsy clinics, an active epilepsy surgery program, and a research program including both clinical and basic science endeavors. Cohen Childrens is the first in Long Island to utilize a robotic assisted device for epilepsy surgery.

Didactics include a structured lecture series, clinical and scientific weekly conferences, journal clubs, case conferences and research meetings. Exposure to sleep medicine will be integrated into the clinical and educational experience. Fellows will gain valuable teaching experience with exposure to neurology residents and medical students.

All fellows rotate through both adult and pediatric rotations during the year, with the majority of patient care performed in the respective area of concentration. For applicants who have already completed a clinical neurophysiology fellowship, the year will be geared toward advanced clinical cases, accelerated in-depth surgical training and research endeavors.

Ideal applicants should be conscientious and reliable team players with good communications skills, a solid basic foundation in neurology, and a passion for taking care of patients with epilepsy.
