Enrica Arnaudo, MD, PhD
Enrica Arnaudo, M.D. Ph.D. received her M.D.
with honors and Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University
of Turin, Italy. During her residency in Neurology at the
University of Turin, she was awarded the Carlo Meliga fellowship
from the Italian Muscular Dystrophy Association to conduct
a research fellowship in Neuromuscular Diseases at the H.
Houston Merritt Center of Columbia University in New York.
She trained in molecular genetics and completed several research
projects in the field of mitochondrial myopathies with Dr.
Salvatore DiMauro at Columbia University in New York.
Dr. Arnaudo completed a neurology residency
in the United States at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine,
New York. She was Chief Resident of Neurology and received
a Research Award from the National Institutes of Health and
the Residents' Program Travel Award from the American Neurological
Association. She then was EMG and Clinical Neurophysiology
Fellow at the Neurological Institute of Columbia University
in New York where she trained under Dr. Lewis P. Rowland.
She was director of the Neuromuscular and EMG
Division in the Department of Neurology at Thomas Jefferson
University in Philadelphia from 1997 to 2006. Throughout her
career, Dr. Arnaudo has been involved in the education and
training of students, residents and fellows. At Thomas Jefferson
University, she received the Dean’s Citation for Significant
Contributions to the Advancement of Education. She received
a Research Grant from the Muscular Dystrophy Association for
studies of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. She later started
her own medical practice focusing on neuromuscular diseases
at Neuromuscular Medicine of Delaware. She also serves as
Medical Director of the Christiana Care EMG Laboratory at
Christiana Care. She was Top Doctor in EMG in Delaware
Dr. Arnaudo is board certified by the American
Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (Neurology) and by the ABPN
with added qualifications in Clinical Neurophysiology, and
by the American Board of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic
She is a member of professional organizations as the American
Academy of Neurology, American Association of Neuromuscular
and Electrodiagnostic Medicine, and the Medical and Scientific
Advisory Board of the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America.
She is currently the Delaware State Liaison at the American
Academy of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM).
The AANEM State Liaison Program is responsible for actively
communicating concerns to payers and state agencies regarding
quality electrodiagnostic medicine. Dr. Arnaudo is a strong
advocate of quality EMG care and educates her patients on
resource utilization and quality EMG consultations.
Her main clinical interest focuses on
providing expert opinion for patients suffering from neuromuscular
diseases, including myasthenia gravis, motor neuron diseases,
and peripheral neuropathies. She works with her neuromuscular
patients to maintain their mobility and productivity through
medical therapy and healthy lifestyle habits.
