One-year fellowships in intra-operative clinical neurophysiologic monitoring are available through the Center for Clinical Neurophysiology.

The applicant must be eligible for unrestricted medical licensure in the state of Pennsylvania. Selected candidates will gain extensive experience and training in monitoring both adult and pediatric surgical procedures including neurosurgical, orthopedic, ENT and vascular surgeries as well as in interventional radiology procedures.

Opportunities for clinical research and career building are excellent.
