The goal of the Johns Hopkins Movement disorder fellowship is to train exceptionally qualified individuals in the diagnosis and management of a wide variety of movement disorders. The fellowship focuses on rotations through sub-specialty clinics where patients with Parkinson Disease, Dystonia, Tourette Syndrome, FTD, and Ataxia are seen. The program’s close relationship with other divisions and departments ensures exposure to specialty clinics in otolaryngology, neuro-ophthalmology, neurosurgery, neuropsychiatry, cognitive neurology, NPH, and telemedicine. The Inpatient Movement Disorders Consult service allows a unique experience, together with our exceptional PD 4-bed inpatient unit for advanced medication adjustments. Technical training in aspects of BoNT and DBS, including patient selection, intraoperative mapping, and follow-up programming are emphasized.
Fellows are strongly encouraged to develop a unique research interest during their time in the program. A wide range of clinical trial exposure allows gaining familiarity with designing and managing clinical trials, including eIRB experience. Select individuals, depending on their background/interest, may pursue basic science projects as well.
