Program Overview

Emory Movement disorders program has an opening for a fellow annually. This 1-2 year comprehensive movement disorders fellowship consists of a first year with intensive clinical training. Caring for more than 10,000 patients annually, the Emory Movement Disorders Program offers fellows exposure to the full range of movement disorders including Parkinson’s disease, atypical parkinsonism, dystonia, tremor disorders, Tourette’s Syndrome, Huntington’s Disease, drug-induced movement disorders and other neurogenetic disorders. In addition, a very active Botulinum Toxin Injection Clinic performs over 1000 patients with dystonia and a very active deep brain stimulation programs provides experience in the operating room and with programming post-operatively. We perform surgery routinely on patients with tremor, Parkinson’s disease and dystonia. The second year can be tailored to the interest of the fellow including experience in functional neurosurgery, sleep, cognitive disorders, clinical and basic research. The Department of Neurology consistently ranks among the top few institutions in federal research funding with a substantial portion in movement disorders. With a large and highly productive research faculty in both clinical and basic research, fellows have the opportunity to design an individualized research training program in either clinical or laboratory aspects of movement disorders.

Successful completion of an ACGME-accredited neurology residency is required. 
We adhere to the Uniform Acceptance Date for Fellowships.
