Movement Disorders Fellowship

Program Overview

The VCU Movement Disorders Fellowship is a 1 or 2 year program (per fellow preference) that provides world-class clinical training in the diagnosis and management of movement disorders, as well as the opportunity to develop experience with clinical and translational research. Fellows can expect an in-depth exposure to a wide variety of common and rare movement disorders, as well as involvement in clinical, research, and educational electives tailored to their specific goals and interests.  1-year fellowships will be primarily clinical (including training in botulinum toxin injections and Deep Brain Stimulation programming), with some additional exposure to research projects and clinical research/clinical trial design. 2-year fellowships will provide expanded time in the second year for pursuing more in-depth research projects and research training, to further develop fellows into clinician-investigators.
