Program Aims

The UW Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship Program aims to:

  1. Train fellows to become clinically adept neurophysiologists
  2. Instill habits of professionalism and lifelong learning
  3. Prepare fellows for clinical or academic careers per their own preferences
  4. Develop a pipeline of neurologists for UW and the state of Wisconsin

Values Statement

Faculty and fellows  will strive to provide the highest quality of care to every patient. It is our unwavering view that the patient comes first, and must be offered with the compassion and professionalism that we would expect for our families and ourselves.

Our program emphasizes a team approach, with close interaction among attending physicians, fellows, residents, and other health care professionals. We highly value our culture of safety, wherein anyone can feel free to ask questions, make suggestions, or raise concerns without fear of reprisal.

Finally, we value intellectual curiosity and rigor. We eschew hasty conclusions in favor of the traditional form of neurological case formulation and reject reflexive decision-making in favor of critical reasoning and the application of sound science to patient care.
