Mary T. Silvia, MD
ACGME-accredited one year Epilepsy Fellowship provides a broad and detailed exposure to a variety of neurophysiologic techniques including electroencephalography (EEG), evoked potentials (EP), and intraoperative monitoring (IOM) in both adult and pediatric patients.  The fellowship emphasizes the comprehensive treatment of epilepsy in children and adults. The fellow will have intensive video-EEG monitoring exposure in a 6 bed Epilepsy Monitoring Unit using state of the art neuroimaging techniques in PET, SPECT, fMRI, MRI.  In addition, there is extensive exposure to advanced electrodiagnostic techniques in cortical localization by use of intracranial depth and grid electrodes, cortical mapping, and many other techniques. The use of MEG has further strengthened our evaluation process of patients with complex epilepsy syndromes. The fellow will participate in epilepsy drug trials, epilepsy clinics and research studies led by the faculty.  The training will lead to eligibility for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology with certification in Epilepsy.
