The Comprehensive Epilepsy Program at The Detroit Medical Center is dedicated to the care of people with epilepsy. The program provides state of the art medical and surgical treatment for adults and children with epilepsy. We offer a full complement of advanced diagnostic tests to establish seizure classifcation, access repsonse to medical therapy, and evaluate patients for epilepsy surgery.

The Epilepsy fellowship training at Wayne State University/Detroit Medical Center is part of the Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship Program. It is a collaborative effort of the School of Medicine and various hospitals of the Detroit Medical Center. The fellowship is accredited by ACGME and accepts total of six fellows per year (five fellows on the adult side and one on pediatric side). The Fellowship Program offers positions in four different tracks;

  • EEG/Epilepsy track (Adult)
  • EMG/Neuromuscular track (Adult)
  • Combined EMG/EEG track (Adult)
  • Pediatric EEG/Epilepsy track

The Epilepsy fellowship can be completed in either one or two years depending upon the candidate's objective. We offer up to two positions per year for EEG/Epilepsy track on adult service. There is an additional position for Pediatric EEG/Epilepsy fellowship every year. The candidates on the combined track fellowship, spend six months each on EEG/Epilepsy and EMG/Neuromuscular rotations.
