The UC Davis ACGME-accredited Neuromuscular Medicine Fellowship is a one-year fellowship focused on the diagnosis and clinical management of patients with neuromuscular disorders, and electrodiagnostic medicine. The program is designed to provide advanced knowledge and experience in the subspecialty practice of neuromuscular and electrodiagnostic medicine beyond that expected of a general physiatrist. The fellowship includes a broad clinical experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings and encompasses care of both pediatric and adult populations with a wide variety of neuromuscular disorders.
Fellows receive training in:
The performance and interpretation of nerve and muscle biopsies.
The performance and interpretation of electrodiagnostic studies in children and adults.
Partnering with the MDA and ALS associations, UC Davis has a strong tradition of providing excellent care to patients with various neuromuscular disorders. We are proud to be a leader in the field of Neuromuscular Medicine, offering the only PM&R-based ACGME-accredited Neuromuscular Medicine Fellowship.
