Baylor College of Medicine Clinical Neurophysiology Fellows are encouraged to participate in scholarly activity during their fellowship year. All scholarly activity projects are performed with mentorship from epilepsy/clinical neurophysiology faculty. Fellows have a half-day per week protected to work on their scholarly activity. Many trainees choose to participate in research projects during their fellowship. The epilepsy programs at Baylor College of Medicine have a robust translational, clinical and basic science research program. See more about the research from our prominent research faculty.
