Clinical Fellowship:
Epilepsy is not a single disorder, but rather a syndrome with vastly divergent symptoms, all involving episodic abnormal electrical activity in the brain. The CDC estimates that approximately 2 million people in the United States have epilepsy, and it is estimated that nearly 140,000 new cases will be diagnosed in the United States. The incidence is highest in individuals younger than age 2 and older than age 65, and higher among racial minorities than whites. Although epilepsy is a relatively common chronic condition, in the majority of cases, its cause remains a mystery. Epilepsy is usually controlled with medication; however, more than 30% of people with epilepsy do not have seizure control even with the best available therapies. From diagnosis to managing the physiologic and social effects of living with epilepsy, clinical research and supportive care are needed for patients and their families

Scholarship Description: Applications are welcome from institutions and programs that focus on acquiring advanced knowledge and skills in the comprehensive management of patients with epilepsy and its related disorders.

Scholarship Application Deadline: 28 February 2011
