Stanford Comprehensive Epilepsy Program Fellowship

We encourage you to apply at least 2 years ahead

We have filled the three available positions for 2016. However, we are accepting applications for 2017.

The Stanford Comprehensive Epilepsy Program accepts 3 fellows per year for intensive advanced training in Epilepsy or Clinical Neurophysiology. Both training programs are accredited by the American College of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Two-year fellowships are encouraged, but one-year fellowships are also offered. A greater degree of supervisory responsibility is expected in the second year of fellowship. A larger fraction of time should be made available for research projects in the second year, but this will depend upon the availability of other fellows and house staff to work in the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit.

Interested applicants should have completed Neurology residency by the time of entry and have a US license to practice medicine. Applicants should be moving toward a likely career in academic practice. Acceptance is on a competitive basis and applicants from diverse groups are encouraged to apply. 

To apply, please send:

  1.  A curriculum vitae
  2. Short personal statement
  3. Minimum three letters of recommendation via email to:

    Kevin Graber, MD
    Clinical Associate Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
