Based on a survey of program directors and residents, Drs. Daniello and Weber reported in "Education research: The current state of neurophysiology education in selected neurology residency programs" that up to a quarter of graduating residents are neither proficient nor confident at EEG and EMG interpretation. The most commonly cited obstacle to learning about electrophysiology was time. In response, Dr. Sethi notes that the 80-hour work week rule needs to be relaxed. However, residents also reported lack of interest in electrophysiology. Drs. Daniello and Weber optimistically believe this may simply be the result of a lack of knowledge and that incorporating electrophysiology training early in residency, particularly in EMG, would help foster interest and thereby improve confidence and proficiency in EEG and EMG interpretation.
