The OHSU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center offers a two-year training in adult epilepsy, including a first year in the epilepsy fellowship accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and a second year of advanced epilepsy training.

Fellows have the chance to work with eight adult epileptology faculty at OHSU and partners at the Epilepsy Center of Excellence at the Portland VA Medical Center. Successful completion of the ACGME-accredited component prepares the fellow to become certified in epilepsy by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Fellowship includes substantial training in pediatric EEG, or electroencephalogram, reading and epilepsy management, and elective time is provided. It also includes clinical or basic science research components.
