Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship Research


Baylor College of Medicine Clinical Neurophysiology Fellows are encouraged to participate in scholarly activity during their fellowship year. All scholarly activity projects are performed with mentorship from epilepsy/clinical neurophysiology faculty. Fellows have a half-day per week protected to work on their scholarly activity. Many trainees choose to participate in research projects during their fellowship. The epilepsy programs at Baylor College of Medicine have a robust translational, clinical and basic science research program. See more about the research from our prominent research faculty.
