Neuroimmunology Fellowship

The Neuroimmunology Fellowship combines training in clinical care and research in the fields of multiple sclerosis and related demyelinated and auto-immune diseases, neurological complications of HIV, and infectious diseases of the nervous system. This two-year fellowship is open to board-eligible or certified neurologists in the U.S. or to foreign-trained neurologists with a valid Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates certificate.

The fellowship training provides complete exposure to the clinical management of MS patients and other complex demyelinating disorders and experience with the most recent advances in MS management. It also provides training in all neurological complications of HIV-infection, as well as other infections of the nervous system. It allows fellows to care for patients on the entire immune spectrum, from the most immune active (MS) to the most immune-suppressed (HIV/AIDS).

Fellows also gain familiarity with clinical trials and methodology in MS. They participate in clinical, translational and basic science research projects. They learn how to prepare IRB protocols and how to design and conduct clinical research studies.
