The University of Colorado Department of Neurology has continuously provided neuromuscular fellows with structured and comprehensive training for the past 40 years. The goal of the Neuromuscular Medicine Fellowship is to train neurologists to gain subspecialty expertise in neuromuscular disorders. Our program is a combined ACGME-accredited Neuromuscular Medicine and UCNS-accredited Clinical Neuromuscular Pathology Fellowship. Graduates of the program will serve to advance the science and understanding of nerve and muscle abnormalities. They will also provide state-of-the-art diagnoses and care for patients with nerve and muscle disorders and will educate other physicians (including internists, family practitioners, neurology residents, general neurologists and other neuromuscular subspecialists), other healthcare personnel and the public about these disorders. Upon successful completion of this combined fellowship program, fellows will be eligible to sit for three board certifications exams: Neuromuscular Medicine (ABPN), Electrodiagnostic Medicine (ABEM), Clinical Neuromuscular Pathology (UCNS).
