The Department prides itself on excellent fellowship opportunities in a variety of areas. These include stroke, neuro-intervention (one of the few programs in North America where neurologists lead the training staff), electrophysiology (both EEG and EMG training), neuro-ophthalmology, neuro-otology, neuro-epidemiology (including travel and work opportunity in sub-Saharan Africa) and an emerging program in movement disorders and geriatric neurology. Resident applicants from the Michigan State University/Sparrow program are provided with an advantage in their application to the ACGME approved fellowship programs. There are also advanced science degree programs available at MSU for qualified applicants.
Faculty supporting these fellowships include some of the brightest cutting edge educators and clinical researchers in North America. We encourage research intense programs with the intent of helping to mentor excellence in clinical work and academic opportunity. Having Michigan State University facilities available to assist with these fellowship programs allows fellow interaction with science faculty from multiple advanced degree labs and Colleges including faculty from bio-engineering, pharmacology, physiology, biochemistry, the College of Communication Arts and Sciences, a College of Veterinary Medicine and on campus medical schools.
Applicants for these fellowships, who will conclude accredited neurology (or ophthalmology in the case of neuro-ophthalmology/ neuro-otology fellowship interest) training programs are encouraged to write or email the Department. This can be done with individual faculty or through the office of the chair at firstname.lastname@example.org/517-432-9277.
