Description

The MUSC Movement Disorder Fellowship offers trainees clinical exposure and training in all types of movement disorders, pediatric and adult. Fellows will gain experience in all aspects of deep brain stimulation, including evaluations, intraoperative mapping and programming. They will gain experience in botulinum toxin injections for all movement disorders, with EMG guidance. We have an active clinical trial center, and the fellows will gain experience in this process as well. Fellows with an interest in academics will receive mentorship in clinical research and grant writing.
