About Your EMG/NCV Fellowship in Clinical Electrodiagnosis (F-EDX)
Our EMG/NCV Fellowship program for healthcare professionals blends online and on-site learning together for the convenience of our fellows. Fellows are often able to continue their regular job while also enrolled in our Fellowship program.
The EMG/NCV Fellowship program for healthcare professionals has everything to take a clinician from having little to no experience in the field to becoming a subject matter expert.
This Fellowship program is exclusively for healthcare professionals, including MDs, DOs, Chiros, DPMs, NPs, and PAs. Physical Therapists who want to become Fellows can opt for a specialized PT Fellowship program tailored just for them.
PTs with R-EDX® can further pursue the Fellowship credential, F-EDX, by completing an extra 100 mentored studies. These studies can be tailored to a specific clinical interest, such as Entrapment Neuropathies or Radiculopathies. Thus, their F-EDX will be specialized, reflecting their area of clinical expertise.
