SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I am currently a neurology resident and have recently become interested in the ESN field. I am looking to apply to fellowships this year. After researching the SDN forms and the internet, there appear to be too many fellowships that are willing to or have accepted candidates from Neurology in the past. Given the time constraints during residency, it is not possible for me to apply and interview at all the fellowships. I am looking for some help to narrow down my list on where I should apply. Location is not an issue for me. I am willing to live any where for 3 years after the fellowship. Questions: 1) Are ACGME approved fellowships better than not approved? Will there be ESN boards in the next few years? 2) Are Neurology run fellowships better than NSG or Neurorad run fellowships. As a Neurology resident which one will be the best for me? (Probably the training in all fellowships is good, but which one will be best suited for the Job market available for neurology trained candidates) 3) What else should one look at, when trying to evaluate a fellowship program. Please offer any advise you can. Thank you.
