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 Today.

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 Medicine (ABEM).
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.
