Fellow Attendance Policy

Goals and Objectives of Conferences:

The overarching goals of the conferences is to create neurophysiology physicians with a broad knowledge base capable of managing complex epilepsy and neuromuscular patients. The objectives for educational conference will be documented attendance at the mandatory conferences of greater than 70%; failure to maintain this level of attendance may result in freezing or forfeiture of the fellow’s educational fund. The fellow is required to attend the required conferences and lectures noted in the table, unless excused by the program director. The second objective is successful board certification of fellows.

Recording Attendance

  • Fellows will be instructed to manage their own attendance. Attendance will be collected on a monthly basis by the program coordinator who will manually enter into MedHub. Attendance will then be shared at the mid-year and end of year evaluation meetings.

Optional Educational Conferences

  • Fellows are able to attend any other conferences that are held for the other residency and fellowship programs. Attendance is not required, and therefore will not count towards the 70% total attendance requirement
