Adult Fellowship Program
The Stanford Comprehensive Epilepsy Fellowship Program accepts approximately 4 first year fellows annually for intensive advanced training in Epilepsy. Clinical Neurophysiology with emphasis on EEG is reserved for fellows committed to two years of training. Both training programs are accredited by the American College of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
Two-year fellowships are encouraged, but one-year fellowships are also offered. Several distinct training pathways are possible for the second year of fellowship and more supervisory responsibility is expected. Overall the program strives for a complement of at least 5-6 fellows. A separate pediatric epilepsy program admits 2 fellows annually.
Interested applicants must complete an ACGME accredited Neurology residency by the time of entry and have a California license to practice medicine. Applicants should be moving toward a likely career in academic practice. Acceptance is on a competitive basis and applicants from diverse groups are encouraged to apply.
To apply, please send:
- A curriculum vitae
- Short personal statement stating training and career goals
- Minimum three letters of recommendation via email to:
Kevin Graber, MD
Clinical Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Applicants interested specifically in an accredited pediatric epilepsy fellowship should apply directly to Dr. William Gallentine. Those interested in Clinical Neurophysiology training with primary emphasis in intraoperative monitoring or electromyography should instead apply to those programs.
Participation in the clinical fellowship program is not currently available for graduates of non-ACGME accredited/foreign programs, but interested candidates for postdoctoral epilepsy training may contact investigators directly:
