The Division of Pediatric Neurology & Developmental Neuroscience, Department of Pediatrics, Baylor College of Medicine, is pleased to announce vacancies for an epileptologist at Texas Children's Hospital Main Campus. The academic appointment as Assistant Professor (tenure track), will be in the Division of Pediatric Neurology & Developmental Neuroscience of the Department of Pediatrics, Baylor College of Medicine. 

Baylor College of Medicine and Department Summary: As a member of the National Association of Epilepsy Centers, our Level 4 program includes a 12-bed EMU and 20-bed CEEG Neurocritical Care monitoring service. Our hospitals located in Houston, Texas, provide Pediatric Emergency Centers staffed by physicians who are board-certified in Pediatric Emergency Medicine; acute care inpatient units staffed by Pediatric Hospitalists; and intensive care units staffed by Pediatric Critical Care specialists. A large cohort of pediatric subspecialists provide inpatient and outpatient services at all locations (Main Campus, West Campus, and Woodlands). 

Our Pediatric Epilepsy and Epilepsy Surgery Programs provide all aspects of epilepsy medical and surgical care, especially minimally invasive pediatric epilepsy procedures and neuromodulation, including VNS, DBS, and RNs. We have 20 epileptologists/clinical neurophysiologists and 2 epilepsy surgeons and offer a full complement of SPECT, PET, fMR, source localization, TMS, MEG, and Subdural and Stereo EEG invasive monitoring. Subspecialty programs include the ketogenic diet, epileptic spasms, Tuberous Sclerosis, Rett Syndrome, Angelman Syndrome, sodium channel, CNS inflammation (including Rasmussen Syndrome), vascular, and new onset seizures. The candidate will assist with coverage of inpatient epilepsy and neurophysiology services, the interpretation of EEG studies, and fellow clinic in addition to their own clinical practice. Collaboration with neurosurgery and associated research is expected. 

Position Qualitifications: 

  • Minimum Education: M.D. or equivalent.
  • Minimum Certification/Licensure: Licensed by the Texas Medical Board; obtainable upon hire offer.
  • Board certified/eligible

UTSW Pediatric Epilepsy Fellowship Program


Pediatric Epilepsy Fellowship Program Director: Deepa Sirsi, MD - [email protected]


Program Coordinator: Tayler Kalia, MHA - [email protected] | (214) 456-9587


*We are currently recruiting for one pediatric epilepsy fellowship position for 2025-2026*


The UT Southwestern Pediatric Epilepsy Fellowship Program prepares the upcoming generation of pediatric epileptologists to make significant contributions to clinical and academic pediatric epilepsy at the highest levels. The Children's Medical Center of Dallas is the primary clinical location for this fellowship. The Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at Children's Medical Center of Dallas is designated a level 4 Epilepsy center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers and the EEG lab is ABRET certified. Facilities include an 8-bed pediatric epilepsy-monitoring unit (EMU), a 40-bed neonatal ICU, & pediatric and cardiac ICUs. Neonatal EEG expertise is attained as the center reads EEGs performed in the Parkland Hospital NICU and 2 other NICUs in the metroplex. 

The Pediatric Neurophysiology lab performs ~4000 pediatric routine EEGs, and 3500 long-term video EEGs, annually. There are 50-75 epilepsy surgeries performed annually including 20-25 stereo EEG evaluations, 20-25 resections, and laser thermoablations, and 20-25 neurostimulation procedures (RNS/DBS/VNS). The Comprehensive Epilepsy Center sees ~8,000 outpatient epilepsy visits per year. 

We offer 5 pediatric fellowship positions per year and applicants can choose from either a 1 year or 2-year training program tracks. Candidates interested in pursuing a career in surgical epilepsy or at an academic epilepsy center can apply for 2 years of fellowship training can include 1 year each of epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology. Applicants can reach out directly to Dr. Deepa Sirsi (Program Director) and/or Tayler Kalia (Program Coordinator) through email. 

Program Objectives for fellow competence in:

  • Pediatric electroencephalography - routine and long-term continuous EEG monitoring, neonatal EEG, pediatric ICU EEG monitoring. 
  • Evaluation of potential candidates for epilepsy surgery - Phase 1 pre-surgical evaluations, utilization of neuroradiologic tests, and exposure to Magnetoencephalography. 
  • Outpatient Clinical management of refractory pediatric epilepsy - pharmacological, surgical, and dietary therapies. 


Fellows will have exposure and opportunities for participation in:

  • Epilepsy surgery - intracranial EEG evaluations including stereo EEG, subdural grids & strips, functional cortical mapping, selection of neurostimulation treatments including responsive neurostimulation, deep brain stimulation, and vagus nerve stimulation. 
  • Quality improvement and clinical trials in epilepsy with opportunities to participate and collaborate with faculty on multicenter studies. 
  • Participate in natural history and intervention trials for children with rare genetic epilepsies. 
  • Participate in rare genetic epilepsy clinics including Rett Syndrome, Angelman Syndrome, and Tuberous Sclerosis Complex clinics.
