    Hey everyone

    I hope you all are doing well and congrats to everyone that matched!

    Recently I stumbled upon this website that claims that Psychiatrist can pursue fellowships in Clinical Neurophysiology and Sleep medicine. http://www.abms.org/Who_We_Help/Consumers/About_Physician_Specialties/psychiatry.aspx

    I have also seen somewhere else that psychiatrists can aquire fellowships in Clincal Neurophysiology: http://www.abpn.com/spec_subspec_description.htm#cnp

    and

    http://www.abpn.com/applications.htm

    Is this true? If so, in what capacity can psychiatrists use this and in what context. Is it an outpatient private procedure or is it more of an inpatient procedure.

    Thanks

    Yes, it is true. If you get to choose Clinical Neurophysiology, you will most likely be working in a hospital-based facility. If you go for sleep medicine, you could work in a sleep clinic; some of these sleep clinics are hospital-affiliated (i.e., either located within the hospital or off-site), others are independent clinics.

    Hope this answers your question.

    Hey everyone

    I was wondering why this fellowship is not usually mentioned as a subspecialty of psychiatry. After all, it the ABPN says that psychiatrists can pursue this fellowship. Does anyone know how difficult it is to acquire this fellowship and the earning potential of a psychiatrist that completes the fellowship.

    Thanks

    I know this thread is several years old, but I was hoping to resurrect it to ask about clinical neurophysiology fellowships. I know that psychiatrists are "eligible" for these, but do they prefer to take neurologists? How hard is it to get a clinical neurophysiology fellowship as a psychiatrist?

    And a more imminent issue - if I'm interested in a clinical neurophysiology fellowship after psychiatry training, are there any particular residency programs that I should be considering (I'm currently a 4th-year student)? Are there any particular programs where the clinical neurophysiology department works closely with psychiatry?

    The cleveland clinic interviewed me about 10 years ago for their neurophys fellowship (my primary interest was sleep, my background wa Med/Psych)

    I was not accepted
