Electrodiagnostic medicine (EM) is an integral part of neurology and physiatry. It is an extension of the clinical diagnosis and is vital for evaluating patients with any form of peripheral neuromuscular disorder. Neurologists and physiatrists must become well versed in the technique, application, and interpretation of electrophysiologic studies before they can perform studies independently. Not all neurology and physiatry trainees pursue a fellowship in EM, and hence exposure to and training in EM are vital during residency.
