Brief information on program: This Fellowship is designed to train academically-oriented neurologists and physiatrists for a career combining patient care and clinical research in multiple sclerosis and related disorders. The training program is flexible; the specific curriculum and duration are tailored to the Fellow’s background, interests, and career goals. One aspect of the fellowship is supervised patient care to develop specialized expertise in the diagnosis and management of MS and related disorders. Fellows participate as a member of a large multi-disciplinary clinical team. The other potential focus of the fellowship is training in clinical research, most often experimental therapeutics but also epidemiology, imaging, neuropsychology, or rehabilitation. Fellows divide their time between participation as a co-investigator in ongoing clinical trials and research studies, graduate coursework, and conducting independent research, typically leading to a Master’s Degree in Clinical Research.
