Institutional Clinical Training Award
“Consistent with its mission to move toward a world free of multiple sclerosis, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society supports the training of physicians in the comprehensive care of people with MS. As part of this commitment, the Society is currently providing five-year awards to 11 mentors and institutions to provide training for board-certified/eligible neurologists and physiatrists in MS specialist care. Training includes new and follow-up patient consultations and treatment under the supervision of an MS specialist physician along with participation in a multidisciplinary team, lectures, and professional meetings. The goal is for fellows to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to provide the highest quality of care for individuals with MS.
The mentor-institution is responsible for the recruitment, selection, and training of postdoctoral fellows to pursue a clinical career specializing in the care of individuals with multiple sclerosis and similar disorders. The salary offered is $75,000 plus up to an additional 25% to cover fringe benefits. The term of training of each fellow is determined by the mentor based on the period of time required for the training needed for development of an independent clinician. Support for a given fellow is not usually provided for less than one year or more than three years.
For the 2017-2018 cycle, the Society will not receive applications for new Institutional Clinician Training Awards. Current awards will continue as planned
