Movement Disorders Fellowship

We would like to welcome you to our program and extend our congratulations to you on successfully finishing your residency training.

The UConn Health – Hartford HealthCare Movement Disorders Fellowship is a one-year program emphasizing clinical bedside and clinical research experience. We accept 1 fellow every year.

The primary sites are the Movement Disorders Clinic at UConn Health and the Chase Family Movement Disorders Center at the Hartford HealthCare Ayer Neuroscience Institute, affiliated with the University of Connecticut School of Medicine.

The fellowship offers a diverse experience in the care of patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and other Movement Disorders. Our fellows are also trained in deep brain stimulation (DBS) programming, programming and management of intrajejunal levodopa infusion, and injections of botulinum toxin.

Movement disorders teaching will take place through didactic sessions scheduled throughout the year, courses and symposiums, and specialized movement disorders clinics.

Salary is very competitive and fellows enjoy a full benefits package that includes medical, dental, life and disability insurance, professional liability, and a tax sheltered investment program. Other benefits offered within the program include book and travel expenses and four weeks of paid vacation/educational leave.
