The Johns Hopkins Neuromuscular Medicine Fellowship

The Neuromuscular Medicine fellowship at Johns Hopkins is a 1-year ACGME accredited clinical program to train neurologists in neuromuscular disorders.  Fellows learn proper diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, perform and read nerve and muscle biopsies, and learn to carry out electrodiagnostic evaluations with nerve conduction studies and electromyography.

Although not part of the ACGME accredited program, 1 or 2 year extensions for focused research projects are available in the areas of muscle disorders, peripheral nerve disorders and motor neuron disease.

Applications for the fellowship consist of CV, three letters of references and a letter of interest stating why you want to do a Neuromuscular Medicine fellowship at Johns Hopkins and an outline of what  your career goals are.  These materials can be sent to Ms. Denise Tawney (
