Core Competencies

Patient care

The goal of the Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship is to train each fellow to provide neurodiagnostic, preventative, acute, and chronic neurological care in a compassionate, appropriate, and effective manner.

Medical knowledge

Neurophysiology fellows acquire the technical skills and knowledge necessary to perform, supervise, and analyze a wide range of neurophysiological procedures, including autonomic testing, electroencephalography, electrocorticography, electromyography, evoked potentials, intracarotid amobarbital (Wada) test, intracranial stimulation (brain mapping), magnetoencephalography, and polysomnography. In addition to acquiring these skills, the fellows expand upon the foundation of basic neuroscientific knowledge established during residency.

Practice-based learning & improvement

Fellows must demonstrate an ability to acquire scientific data, appraise its worth and applicability to the care of a given patient, and assimilate appropriate data into individual patient care. The fellow must demonstrate an ongoing ability to re-evaluate the available scientific literature, to re-evaluate his or her ability to apply this data, and to improve his or her neurodiagnostic skills and patient-care practices accordingly.

Interpersonal and communication skills

The Neurophysiology fellow must have adequate interpersonal and communication skills in order to function as an integral part of the neurology team and to exchange information effectively with patients, families, and health care professionals outside of the field of neurology.


The population of patients receiving care through the Henry Ford Health System is diverse with respect to race, ethnicity, and religious beliefs. Neurophysiology fellows must maintain a professional appearance and manner at all times while exhibiting sensitivity to the diversity represented in our patient population. They must practice in a fashion that is consistent with accepted medical ethics.

System-based practice

Fellows will acquire an adequate level of comfort functioning as a neurologist in both the secondary and tertiary care settings. They must be aware of the effect their patients’ care has on the health care system and demonstrate an ability to mobilize resources within the system to optimize the value of care.
