Brief information on program: The Multiple Sclerosis Fellowship at Mayo Clinic’s campus in Rochester, Minnesota, provides one year of advanced training in the diagnosis, treatment and clinical research of patients with immune-mediated disorders of the central nervous system (CNS). A second year of fellowship may be considered depending on your clinical and research interests and long-term career goals.
This program emphasizes:
- The development of clinical and research skills pertaining to neuroimmunologic disorders
- Special emphasis on multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitis optica and related inflammatory demyelinating disorders
- Opportunities to participate in pilot and definitive clinical trials and outcomes research

Mayo Clinic provides opportunities for course work in the design of clinical research studies, statistics, clinical epidemiology, clinical trials design and conduct, as well as basic graduate immunology and more advanced courses in immunology.
In addition, there are opportunities for you to actively participate in basic science research programs pertaining to the mechanisms of demyelination, remyelination, CNS autoimmunity and genetic epidemiology.
