Clinical Neurology and Neuroscience Fellowships

Clinical Neurology Fellowships

Clinical fellowship training is available in many subspecialties, including clinical neurophysiology (with subspecialty in epilepsy, neuromuscular disease, or intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring), stroke/vascular neurology, multiple sclerosis & neuroimmunology, neurocritical care, neuro-oncology (adult and child neurology), headache, and movement disorders. In general, applicants should have completed neurology residency by the time of entry into the fellowship and have a U.S. license to practice medicine.

Neuroscience Fellowships

Residents in Stanford Neurology are eligible for the Neuroscience Scholar Track.  Stanford is home to many of the most renowned neuroscience investigators in the world.  Information may be obtained from many investigator's personal or lab web sites, or from the multiple online resources that highlight the broader Stanford academic community.
