The Section of Movement Disorders accepts fellowship applicants who have completed full residency training in neurology, acquired an Illinois Medical Licensure to be effective by the time the fellowship begins. The post-resident neurologist must be eligible for certification or already certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology with a commitment to academic careers.
Many Movement Disorders fellowship programs have agreed to join forces and select fellows via a standardized matching program. This Movement Disorders Fellowship (MODIF) Match Network is a computerized match conducted by SFMatch, and is similar to the residency matching program.
There is a centralized application process through the San Francisco Match. Fellowship applicants should submit their application through the Match. Rules on the match are presented on the SFMatch website
Fellowship applicants who are granted interviews should plan to spend the day for the interview. The applicants will meet with the movement disorders faculty and tour the laboratory facilities, as well as the neurology inpatient unit.
