Multiple Sclerosis Clinical Care Physician Fellowship
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society offers a one year, post-residency MS clinical* fellowship program designed to train board eligible/certified neurologists or physiatrists in specialized MS clinical care. The program is sponsored by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. This is a competitive program and we intend to fund 16 fellows this cycle. Applicants who will spend the majority of their time in either adult or pediatric MS care are encouraged to apply.

This 12-month program for board eligible/certified neurologists or physiatrists provides fellows with the opportunity to perform new patient consultations and follow-up evaluations under the supervision of an MS specialist physician. Fellows will also participate in multidisciplinary team activities, lectures, and professional meetings, leading to the acquisition of skills and knowledge necessary to provide the highest quality of care for individuals with MS.
It is the responsibility of the applicant to arrange the proposed training with an appropriate mentor and institution. The stipend offered is $75,000, payable to the institution, to cover salary, fringe benefits, and administrative costs.
