About the AES Fellows Program

The American Epilepsy Society Fellows Program is the Society’s flagship career development program for early career researchers, clinicians, and advanced practice providers. Its goal is to engage promising epilepsy professionals in AES activities, education, and mentoring—and to connect them with AES leaders, members, and each other. Fellows attend the AES Annual Meeting for several days of intensive exposure to epilepsy science, medicine, career skills and paths, networking, top-notch education, and social events.

Approximately 105 fellows from institutions in the US and Canada will be accepted, including clinical fellows in approved epilepsy, clinical neurophysiology, or neurosurgery fellowship programs; advanced practice providers (up to five); and postdoctoral research fellows and trainees (up to 15) with advanced degrees in professional fields related to nursing, pharmacology, pharmacy, psychology, and basic science.
