This 500-bed acute care center, located on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, is one of the region’s major hospitals.

Much of the patient base comes from the local urban area. The hospital also serves as a tertiary referral center, with a significant patient population drawn from Western New York’s eight counties.

Patients present with the entire range of disease states in internal medicine, general surgery and cardiothoracic surgery, with many critically ill cases.


During your EMG rotations, you’ll train at this state-of-the-art hospital — specifically, in our on-site UBMD Neurology clinic and in the Muscular Dystrophy Association Clinic, recognized as a center of excellence in the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular diseases.

As a key member of our neurology consult team, you’ll diagnose and treat patients with a wide range of neuromuscular disorders and learn how to conduct and interpret EMG and nerve conduction studies.

Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Clinic

In this weekly clinic, you’ll receive extensive and intensive instruction in the diagnosis and treatment of primarily adult patients with diseases of motor neurons, plexi, peripheral nerves, neuromuscular junction and muscle.

Our team sees at least four patients per half-day session.

Because of our reputation for accurate diagnosis and best-practice treatments, neurologists and non-neurologists refer patients to us from across Western New York.

Our clinic is part of a national network of neuromuscular specialty clinics at the forefront of research and clinical care.
